Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi,I'm Zoey and I'll be assisting you. I'm reviewing your question now. Please be patient while I compose a reply for you.
If charges have been pressed, you shouldn't have to bring an action for a separate restraining order. When the defendant comes before the judge, on this type of a case, in my experience the prosecutor will ask for a restraining order. Typically, it will keep the complainant from you, your home, and your workplace.
You're the complainant on the case, and you can call the prosecutor's office, find out the name and extension number of the DA who is prosecuting your assailant and make sure that a protective order will be forthcoming and that extend to your workplace.
If you require additional information, please post your follow up here on this question thread, and I’ll be happy to provide it.
