North Carolina’s Civil Restraining Order Options In North Carolina, you…
Is domestic violence an issue in your household? If so, you could be entitled to a 50-B restraining order to keep your spouse, partner, or other household member away from you. Depending on your circumstances, you could also be granted temporary custody of your children and possession of your home and vehicle. Speak with one of our attorneys for more details.
Alternatively, if you have been served with a 50-B restraining order, you must not contact or go near the person who took out the restraining order against you. You will have an opportunity to defend yourself in court, but you should have one of our attorneys assist you right away. After you are served with a Complaint for a domestic violence order of protection, you only have 10 days to file an Answer and deny all of those allegations.
