In Ohio, restraining orders can be obtained even if no actual violence has occurred. In many cases, just the alleged fear of harm is enough for the court to issue a Civil Stalking Protection Order, or CSPO. Temporary orders can be issued without the accused even having the chance to defend against the allegations. An adjudication on a CSPO charge can have serious consequences. Be sure you have an experienced defense attorney on your side from the start.
At Michael K. Allen & Associates, we have represented countless clients who have been served with restraining orders. Our attorneys have over 100 years of combined experience in the practice of criminal law. We know how restraining orders work, and we know how to protect your rights.
If your accuser has obtained a temporary restraining order against you, a hearing will be scheduled in Domestic Relations Court or Common Pleas Court to determine if there are grounds to make the order permanent. We will build the most compelling possible case to support your position and work to return you to a normal life as quickly as possible.
All of our attorneys worked at the Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office before going into criminal defense. Mr. Allen served as the elected Hamilton County Prosecuting Attorney. Our comprehensive knowledge of the law and process from both sides of these cases puts us in a strong position to handle your case.
