Restraining Orders

Attorneys Who Can Help With Your Restraining Order Proceedings

There are many types of Restraining Orders in connection with Divorce proceedings.

The first type of restraining order accompanies the Petition for Dissolution. It restrains both parties from selling property, mortgaging property or hiding property without prior consent of the other party. It also requires the parties to notify each other in regards to extraordinary expenses and to account for these extraordinary expenditures in court. The Petition for Dissolution is also accompanied by a restraining order prohibiting either party from removing the minor child from the state of Colorado without prior court order. Additional restraining orders that accompany the Petition for Dissolution include restraining the parties from disturbing the peace of the other party and continuing to pay premiums for insurance (i.e. health insurance, life, homeowners, auto or renter’s insurance).

Securing a Civil Protection Order in Colorado

Another type of restraining order is issued when one party physically requests a civil protection order from the court. This is the type of restraining order most people are familiar. It will enjoin one party from contacting the other party or protected persons, including children, as well as remain at least 100 yards from the protected party’s place of residence, place of employment or school of the children. This restraining order is issued in a temporary format and is effective once issued. The parties are then instructed to return to court, usually within fourteen (14) days to conduct a hearing and determine whether that order will become permanent. Restraining Orders can later be dismissed by the moving party, or continued and enveloped into the divorce proceeding. Another way to resolve restraining orders includes a “No Contact Order” in which the parties enter into a contractual agreement in which they will not contact each other. This agreement is a contract, filed with the court and valid as only a contract. The terms of this contract can be styled to suit either or both parties. This is a civil restraining order.

Domestic Violence and Criminal Protection Orders

The final type of restraining order comes about through a domestic violence situation. When a party is arrested for domestic violence, and once he/she is arraigned in court, the court will issue a criminal protection order. This protection order remains in effect so long as the criminal proceedings remain alive in the court. This would also include the term of the plea, if any, is entered by the court. This type of restraining order restrains the defendant from harassing, molesting or otherwise intimidating the other party.

Consequences of Violating Restraining Orders in Colorado

All of these restraining orders are orders of the court that issues them and will result in further criminal charges if violated. The charges could range from as little as no jail (but probation) to as much as two (2) years in jail if the restraining order is violated. The party restrained is encouraged to abide by the contents of the order lest they find themselves in jail.

    "A courteous, respectful, and efficient group in all phases and aspects of due diligence"
    Highly professional team of attorneys and paralegal staff who work hard to reach the best outcomes for their clients. A courteous, respectful, and efficient group in all phases and aspects of due diligence, and discovery with effective preparation of cases entrusted to them. The partner representing me, Ms. Caryn Adams was truly impressive in her knowledge of the law, her empathy, and her care for getting the best possible resolution in my favor in pre-trial negotiation. And I have no doubt she and her team would be just as dedicated and efficient in more complex defense situations. I recommend them highly and without reservation in all areas of the law in which they are eminently qualified.

    Caryn Adams, Stacey Sadler and the rest of the team at the Gasper law group are an amazing, courteous, compassionate, and very helpful group of talented individuals. I was in a bind and during my consultation I explained my situation and they went above and beyond my expectations. They took care of my case in a very timely manner and made it feel like my traffic ticket was their number one and only priority. I have never been treated with such respect and compassion. I definitely recommend talking to them about any of your legal needs.

    "My charges were dropped and we walked away with all parental rights/custody and a restraining order against the other party."
    Caryn Adams and her team are hands down the BEST. I don't think I would have made it through what I went through without her by my side. My charges were dropped and we walked away with all parental rights/custody and a restraining order against the other party.
