Guiding You Through The Legal Process

The True Effects Of An Ohio Restraining Order

In Ohio, restraining orders can be obtained even if no actual violence has occurred. In many cases, just the alleged fear of harm is enough for the court to issue a Civil Stalking Protection Order (CSPO).

Temporary orders can be issued without the accused even having the chance to defend themselves against the allegations. An adjudication on a CSPO charge can have serious consequences. Be sure you have an experienced defense attorney on your side from the start.
