Domestic Violence and Restraining Orders

Domestic Violence and Restraining Orders

If you’re facing a domestic violence case, contact experienced Sacramento divorce lawyer Alan Mikshansky today for help navigating this complicated legal issue.


Given the urgency of domestic violence cases, the law provides emergency measures to keep you and your family safe. The law is also an avenue to defend your rights when facing allegations of domestic assault. Just like the law, Alan Mikshansky takes domestic violence and spousal abuse cases very seriously.

Given that your safety is his immediate priority, Alan Mikshansky will act swiftly to make sure that you and any minor children involved are safe from harm. Alan Mikshansky is an experienced Sacramento family law attorney specializing in domestic violence and restraining order cases (DVRO). 

For years, the Law Office of Alan Mikshansky has helped people facing domestic violence and abuse secure a restraining order—permanent or temporary. Alan Mikshansky has also helped people falsely accused of domestic violence and abuse fight back and defeat baseless restraining orders and lawsuits. Contact Alan Mikshansky today for help navigating complicated domestic violence issues and other related legal matters, such as divorce and child custody.

Responding to Domestic Violence with a Restraining Order (DVTRO)

Domestic violence is abuse that occurs in the home, usually between family members, spouses, or partners. Legal representation in these circumstances is important. However, if you are in an emergency situation, the first thing to do is to call the police. Your safety is the top priority. When the police arrive and you have been removed from immediate danger, you can request an emergency restraining order from the officer on-scene. 

If the other party violates the order, you can call the police and have him/her arrested. An emergency order may be issued at any time and will usually remain in effect for several days. During this period, you should seek Alan Mikshansky’s advice to obtain a restraining order from a specialized attorney. Such a restraining order:

  • Prevents the other party from contacting or coming near you and your family
  • Keeps the other party from coming to your home, work, or children’s schools
  • Limits that person in other ways

Temporary vs. Permanent Restraining Orders

Depending on your situation, the court will order either a temporary or a permanent restraining order without prior notice to the other party. As a Sacramento domestic violence attorney experienced in domestic violence cases, the Law Office of Alan Mikshansky can help you get a longer-term restraining order. 

A temporary restraining order will last between 20 and 25 days. After that, a hearing will decide whether the court grants a permanent restraining order. As a domestic violence law firm, the Law Office of Alan Mikshansky will prepare you for what to expect from your case and will represent you in court. If the judge rules in your favor, they will issue a permanent restraining order. 

It is important to note that even permanent restraining orders may be limited in duration (typically three years). At the end of that period, the Law Office of Alan Mikshansky can help you request a new order so that your protection will be extended.

Responding to a Restraining Order and Allegations of Domestic Violence

In the context of family law — particularly child custody disputes — it is all too common for one party to take out a restraining order against the other as a way of gaining an advantage. As a family law attorney, Alan Mikshansky can protect you from this type of legal tactic. If you have a restraining order taken out against you and you are involved in a child custody dispute, it is essential that you secure your rights. Our practice can help you avoid court decisions based on unfair and baseless allegations.
