The Law Offices of Qadeer & Sheikh represent and assist victims in restraining orders matters (TRO / FRO). The standard for obtaining a permanent restraining order is discussed in the case Silver vs.Silver. The victim must have a qualifying relationship with the defendant(for example: spouse, child, parent, sibling, significant other), and also has the burden to establish that:
1. The defendant committed one or more of the predicate acts of domestic violence identified in the Prevention of Domestic Violence Act; and
2. There is a need for the protection of an FRO going forward.
If a victim is okay with the communication under almost any circumstance, it is likely the court will not grant a final restraining order. Every case is unique and based on the facts of your situation, we can determine how best to guide you. For more information, please schedule a consultation with our office.
