Restraining Orders

Fayetteville Restraining Order Lawyer

In North Carolina, restraining orders (also known as protective orders) can be issued to protect victims of domestic violence or harassment, or those who have received threats of bodily harm.  The defendant must then stay a certain distance away from the victim as issued in the order.  Restraining orders may also lead to other legal consequences like modification of child custody and visitation orders.
