If someone wishes to have a restraining order enacted against you, that person must prove to a court why he or she needs that restraining order. To do this, the person must first show that he or she had the kind of relationship with you that warrants a restraining order, such as a spousal relationship. In addition, the person must establish that you have committed an action that warrants the order, such as assault, harassment, or stalking.
One of many ways your lawyer can defend against a restraining order is to argue that either of these two elements are missing from your accuser’s case. Your lawyer may try to persuade a judge that you did not have a relationship with the accused that would warrant a restraining order and/or that you did not commit any of the offenses that you are accused of.
