A domestic argument can quickly escalate and lead to the issuance of a temporary no-contact order. If you are the subject of temporary no-contact order, you could be forced from your home and denied contact with your children. If you subsequently violate the temporary or final order, you could be charged with a misdemeanor or felony domestic violence crime depending on the circumstances.
Simply going into court and telling your side of the story will probably not make the temporary no-contact order go away. In fact, what you say could lead the judge to rule against you.
The law governing no-contact orders and domestic violence charges is complex. To protect your rights, you need effective legal representation as soon as possible.
