Restraining orders and protective orders are issued by court to restrain the conduct of one person in order to protect someone who has been formerly victimized from the activities and abuse of another. The judge determines the length of time the restraining order will be in effect for, and upon the expiration of the restraining order, some clients choose to go back to court to file a second restraining order for another length of time.
Temporary Restraining Orders
Sometimes temporary restraining orders can be issued by court to temporarily restrain a person from committing certain acts and from going certain places. If a person fails to show up for a court hearing, a temporary restraining order may be issued. Once the temporary restraining order has been issued by court, a Raleigh law official will serve the order to the person it affects. Temporary restraining orders are usually effective until another court date can be held to determine the need for a permanent restraining order.
