RESTRAINING ORDERS

RESTRAINING ORDERS

 

Oftentimes, a person involved in an altercation is not only charged criminally, but also has a restraining order issued against them. Although it is a civil proceeding, the consequences of having a permanent restraining order issued against you can be significant. In Massachusetts, there are two primary types of restraining orders, Abuse Prevention Orders, which apply to family or household members, and Harassment Prevention Orders, which can apply to anyone.
