Domestic Assault & Restraining Orders

Worcester Domestic Abuse Attorney

Criminal Defense for Domestic Abuse Charges and c.209A Massachusetts Restraining Orders

In Massachusetts, the police take domestic assault allegations seriously. If they are called to a residence, odds are that someone will be arrested and charged with the crime of domestic assault and battery — even if the person who called the police does not want to press charges or has changed his or her mind.

If you have been charged with domestic abuse or with violation of a restraining order, contact Gregory Casale Attorney At Law immediately. You need a strong legal advocate on your side to protect your rights. If the other person is going to file for a restraining order, you will quickly need to defend yourself in court.

If You Have an Emergency and Have Been Injured or Arrested, Even After Hours or Weekends, You Can Speak to an Attorney Within Minutes Call 508-556-6938 or Toll Free 877-752-7501

Get the Facts Before You Have More Trouble

A No-Contact Order is almost always issued after a domestic abuse charge. The police will also assist the alleged victim in getting a restraining order against you ( c.209A order). A temporary restraining order is almost always issued if it is requested and you will be required to leave your home (even if you own the home) and to stay up to 100 yards away from every location where the "victim" may be (even a shared workplace). Your order will list exactly the things you are "restrained" from doing, so read it carefully.

Violating a restraining order will make your situation much worse, so it's important to understand all the things you can and cannot do while the restraining order is in place. You may not be able to call the victim. You may not be able to stop by to pick up mail. You don't want to be facing charges of violating a restraining order or stalking. Attorney Casale can explain how a restraining order will affect your daily life.

You can bring a defense lawyer to the hearing that makes a restraining order permanent. This will occur fairly quickly after the temporary order is approved so it's best to get a lawyer on your domestic abuse case as soon as possible, begin building your defense.
