Temporary & Permanent Protection / Restraining Orders in Denver

Temporary and Permanent Protection / Restraining Orders under C.R.S. 13-14-102 in Denver, Douglas, and Arapahoe County are a firmly established part of the law. They require the detailed attention and understanding of a lawyer who can help you in the fight. Many people unwisely try to represent themselves in these cases and end up with a permanent restraining order which prevents gun or firearm possession. It is best to get an experienced lawyer to help you for several reasons.

First, when people get served with a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) they usually know the person who went to the court and had the judge issue the Order. They may be old friends, past lovers alleging Domestic Violence, or even neighbors. No matter the relationship, the reason the original party obtained the TRO was over a situation that embattled the two parties, and they will be arguing in court over who said what and did what. Having a disinterested party advocating for you will help the Judge or Magistrate see your side without having to weed through the emotions. An attorney has more credibility.

Second, the Colorado Rules of Evidence apply to Protection / Restraining Orders. That means that the Judge will hear only what the law allows him to hear. If someone has an email that you allegedly sent to them, for example, there could be legal grounds to not admit that in court. If you have an attorney in Adams, Jefferson, or Weld County who understands the evidence rules, then you will be in a much better position to have the judge rule in your favor.

The third reason you need an attorney to fight for you against a Temporary Protection / Restraining Order in Larimer, Boulder or El Paso County is because the law is complex and embedded with legal phrases, and definitions. C.R.S. 13-14-102 gives you certain rights and responsibilities. For instance, did you know you are allowed a continuance of up to 120 days to hire a lawyer, subpoena witnesses, and prepare to argue your case? This extension of time could give you time to prepare Direct examinations, Cross Examinations, and Closing Arguments. All of these things will be necessary for you to win at the hearing.

With the intricacies of the Permanent Protection / Restraining Order hearing and the high cost of you lose, be sure to find an experienced attorney who knows how to win. If you or a loved one have been served with a Temporary Restraining Order, call the attorney's at O'Malley Law Office at 303-731-0719. Together, we can protect your future.
