Domestic Violence Restraining Orders & Stalking Protective Orders

Alaska has very strict laws pertaining to domestic violence. Additionally, a finding of domestic violence may have a negative impact on your divorce or custody case. Alaska law allows persons who have suffered from domestic violence to obtain a restraining order against their abuser. Often times, a person while file for a restraining order and the court will grant what is called an ex-parte order which is a 20 day restraining order. The court will then schedule what is called a long-term restraining order hearing. The long-term hearing is more formal and the person you claim is the abuser has the option to appear and present his or her own evidence to a judge.

The Law Office of Evan Barrickman has assisted its clients in both requesting as well as defending against domestic violence restraining orders. Contact the Law Office of Evan Barrickman today for a consultation on your restraining order.

Alaska law also allows a person to file a stalking protective order against a person who is stalking them. If you are being stalked or have had a protective order filed against you, contact the Law Office of Evan Barrickman today for a consultation.
