When Can I File a Restraining Order?

You are able to file a restraining order under three conditions:

  • If an individual has inflicted physical bodily harm against you.
  • If someone has threatened to inflict harm upon you.
  • If you fear for your safety due to a persistent stalker.

If You Think You Are in Trouble, Act Immediately

Waiting to file a restraining order can give your stalker the time to complete a threat or gain confidence to make a frightening move. Our legal system has built-in protections for people who fear for their safety or the safety of their families. At the Law Office of Nabiel C. Ahmed, we build each case according to thousands of cases’ worth of results, taking into account each client’s unique needs. The result is a case that is as strong as possible for the jury.

In addition, being threatened with a restraining order is just as serious a matter. If you are afraid that someone is going to file a restraining order against you, or if someone already has, then you must contact an attorney who has defended the rights of thousands of East Bay residents.
