As Wheat Ridge and Jefferson County family law attorneys, we have seen civil protection or restraining orders used as both a helpful and hurtful tool. Sometimes, a divorce is the result of domestic violence or a dangerous and volatile situation. In these types of cases, protection orders can protect those involved, including children, from being subject to any further abuse. However, false allegations of domestic violence in an attempt to get a restraining order can be extremely damaging. At the Pearman Law Firm, we have helped those in need get the protection they need to feel safe as well as fight against restraining/protection orders that contain false and unfounded allegations.
