Bellenot & Boufford, LLC
Connecticut Attorneys for Restraining Order Matters
Peace of Mind with a Protective Order
At Bellenot & Boufford, LLC, one of the central goals that we seek as a law firm is to provide our clients with peace of mind. Perhaps nowhere is this goal more important than in cases involving restraining and protective orders. These issues are extremely stressful for everyone involved. It is important to work with our Connecticut lawyers, whom you can trust to handle your legal concerns and to be there for you throughout the process.
Two Main Types of Protective Orders
There are two main types of orders of protection. One is criminal in nature and the other is civil in nature. We handle all cases related to these two types:
Protective orders These orders are handled in criminal court and involve domestic violence charges. If an individual is arrested by the police, the court will issue a protective order that is governed by the criminal court.
Restraining orders These orders are civil in nature and involve incidents that do not rise to a level that requires an arrest. There are certain criteria that must be met in order for a court to grant a restraining order. We can help clients properly apply for, prosecute and defend against an order of protection.
Protecting Your Interests Every Step of the Way
With more than 50 years of combined legal experience, our attorneys have a thorough knowledge of all types of restraining orders and protective orders. We help victims of domestic abuse who are seeking an order of protection, and we protect the rights of individuals who have been falsely accused of abuse. We understand the emotional difficulties of these cases, especially when they arise in the context of divorce actions. You can rest assured that we are committed to protecting your interests regardless of the specifics of your situation.
We have been representing clients in Connecticut in a wide range of legal matters since 1990. Our attorneys can help you file for relief from abuse, handle restraining order violations, or help you contest or modify a restraining order. We are committed to helping you find the peace of mind you need.
