It is very common in a divorce setting to have Restraining Orders in place. Restraining Orders can come in many forms and have many appropriate uses. Goldberg Jones is effective in its proactive use of Restraining Orders designed to protect our client as well as defend against Restraining Orders that are harmful or inappropriate.
One common use for a Restraining Order is to prevent your spouse from depleting assets while going through a divorce.
A Restraining Order can prevent actions such as taking money from joint accounts, making withdrawals from retirement or investment accounts and running up significant debt/credit while the divorce is pending.
Another use for a Restraining Order goes beyond purely financial restraints and can speak to the actions or behavior of either spouse. It may be necessary to seek a Restraining Order when there is a need to limit contact between the parties or prevent inappropriate behavior around your children.
Goldberg Jones recognizes that Restraining Orders can be effective tools in furthering our client’s best interests. We also recognize the importance of defending against Restraining Orders that are harmful or offensive to our clients.
