We have years of experience working with clients and their children to keep them safe with a protective order. Do not hesitate to contact our Charlotte restraining order attorney if you need help.

Types of Restraining Orders

In the state of North Carolina, a restraining order is also known as a Domestic Violence Protective Order or a Civil No-Contact order, depending on the parties involved. At Blood Law, we want to do what we can to ensure your safety and protection as well as educate you on the different restraining order options.

In North Carolina, there are three different types of restraining orders:

Domestic violence protective orders

You can seek protection from domestic violence with someone you have had a personal relationship with, such as your spouse, ex-spouse, relative, someone you had a child with, a current or former household member, or someone you are dating or used to date.

Civil no-contact orders

This protective order provides protection against non-consensual sexual conduct and/or stalking from someone with whom you do not have an intimate or familial relationship.

Civil no-contact for victims of registered sex offenders

A civil no-contact order for victims of registered sex offenders provides life-long protection from an abuser who was convicted of a crime that requires registration on the sex offender registry.

How To Get a Domestic Violence Restraining Order

  • Go to the courthouse and file the necessary forms
  • Ask for an ex parte temporary order if needed
  • Take the forms to the sheriff’s office
  • Prepare for your domestic violence protective order hearing
  • Attend your hearing

Why Get a Restraining Order?

If you are a victim of domestic violence, it is imperative that you put measures in place to protect yourself. In North Carolina, a domestic violence protective order can be filed to put the following protections in place:

  • Order the abuser not to assault, threaten, abuse, follow, harass, or interfere with you and your child(ren) in person, at work, on the telephone, or by other means.
  • Allow you to live in the home where you and the abuser have lived together and order the abuser to move out and not return, no matter who owns the home or is on the lease.
  • Order the abuser to provide suitable alternative housing for you.
  • Tell the police to remove the abuser from the home.
