What Is a Restraining Order?
A restraining order is a civil order to protect victims of domestic violence from further attacks. These are issued by courts. It puts restrictions on the abuser as to the proximity they are allowed to maintain near you.
Restraining orders are an effective way of deterring any further violence from an abuser. In Nebraska, domestic abuse is defined as an act of violence committed by a family member or a member of your household.
The violent act can be occur with or without a dangerous instrument including a weapon, large object, etc. It can also extend to threatening someone verbally or through written means. Furthermore, engaging in unwanted sexual advances can also constitute domestic abuse.
A restraining order will last up to one year and will order the abuser that they may not:
- Restrict your free movement
- Inflict violence on you
- Threaten you
- Not contact you
- Not force you off your property
- Not own or purchase any additional firearms or other weapons
These are some of the restrictions placed upon the abuser to protect the victim. A Restraining Order Lawyer will fight your case and convince the court to place a restraining order on your abuser.

If you feel you have been wrongly accused of domestic abuse and wish to dispute a restraining order, a Restraining Order Lawyer can defend you. You will have five days to respond to challenge and attempt to dismiss the order. A lawyer is your best defense to challenge a restraining order.
