Arrested For Violation Of A Restraining Order In The Greater Boston Area?

Restraining orders, or emergency protection orders (EPO), can complicate a person's life personally, financially, and legally. In Massachusetts, any blood relative, boyfriend, or girlfriend and/or roommate can apply for a 209A temporary 10-day restraining order ex parte - meaning, you could find yourself ordered out of your own home, without having an opportunity to contest the restraining order beforehand. In order to obtain a temporary restraining order, the applicant needs only to sign an affidavit at the local courthouse attesting to the fact that he or she believes to be in danger of serious, imminent bodily harm from you. Since a judge does not get to hear your side of the story, you may find yourself on the street questioning what exactly your rights are. After this disruption, however, you are entitled to a full hearing within ten days. This means that you should move quickly to retain a lawyer experienced with restraining order cases.
