Petition for Domestic Violence Restraining Order Dismissed
Domestic Violence Restraining Order
My client's accuser filed a petition for a domestic violence restraining order against my client. Based upon discussions with my client, the accuser's petition seemed to be vague and inflammatory. So, we did some investigating and discovered that my client's accuser had legal troubles herself. My client's accuser was facing criminal charges in the same county that she filed her petition for a domestic violence restraining order in. We pointed this out in our response to the petition that we filed with the court. After reading our response to her petition, my client's accuser agreed to withdraw her petition instead of going before a judge. Big victory for my client who didn't want this case to be used against him in any custody disputes with his accuser.
