Augusta Restraining Orders Attorney

Thomson Protective Orders Attorney

Under Georgia law, a restraining order or protection order is meant to protect a person whose safety is threatened. Restraining orders are issued commonly in divorce situations, sometimes in response to actual domestic violence or threats, and sometimes because of false accusations. These orders can lead to one spouse or partner having to move out of a home, to changes in child custody or to restrictions on contact and communication between parties. Importantly, charges of domestic violence are not looked upon favorably by judges in divorce proceedings.

If a protection order has been issued against you, or if you are seeking a permanent or temporary protective order (TPO) to ensure your safety, having experienced legal representation is important. At Shawn P. Hammond and Associates, our ability to effectively handle cases involving restraining orders comes from our extensive experience in both family law and criminal defense.

Effective False Allegations Defense

We can help you if you have been accused of any of the following offenses, whether in conjunction with a divorce or not:

  • Harassment
  • Stalking or aggravated stalking
  • Violation of a protective order
  • Spousal abuse, assault or battery
  • Family violence

We have represented clients in many cases involving domestic violence, as well as many cases where a protective order resulted from charges that were untrue. Every situation is different, so it is important to seek the advice of an experienced lawyer if you are unsure of how to handle.
