Your Safety Is Our Number One Priority

Because Plog & Stein, P.C. focuses primarily on family-related issues, the restraining order cases we see are generally related to domestic violence against a spouse or child. The restraining order lawyers at our Denver firm take these cases very seriously – no one, adult or child, should ever need to fear for their safety.

Issuance of a restraining order can prevent:

  • Domestic abuse
  • Assault
  • Stalking
  • Threat of bodily harm
  • Emotional abuse

In Colorado, restraining orders can be obtained in county, municipal, and district courts, pursuant to C.R.S. 13-14-102. The standard for issuance is typically for reasons of “imminent harm” or the threat of harm. Because of the lasting ramifications that child custody and divorce cases can have, as well as their inherently delicate nature, it is not uncommon for restraining orders to be filed at the beginning of child custody or divorce cases.

Over the years, the language of restraining orders has changed to reflect the obligation of the accused to continue paying bills or making other financial support payments while the order is valid. These changes were necessary to recognize the fact that financial control is another common form of domestic violence.

Defense Against Protection Orders

The restraining order attorneys at the Denver firm of Plog & Stein, P.C. are also available to help defend those who have had a restraining order issued against them. While many domestic violence allegations have merit, we recognize that sometimes people are wrongfully accused, or that temporary protection orders are issued on uncertain grounds.
