Acquiring a restraining order in Colorado

Victims of domestic violence, or any other violent crime, have a right to obtain a restraining order in an effort to protect themselves. This goes for those who are being stalked or otherwise abused by someone. The process to acquire a restraining order is cut and dry in Colorado and we will lay it out for you in today's post.

2 things to know about domestic violence in Colorado

A domestic violence accusation can cause serious problems for a Colorado resident. In some cases, for example, a father accused of domestic violence could be barred from seeing his children and living in his home. It could also result in an arrest and detainment in jail.

Abuse victims feel encouraged: All you have to do is ask for help

Which is sadder to think about: (1) The fact that countless men and women around the United States are being victimized by domestic violence; or, (2) the fact that victims could make the violence stop at the touch of a button if they knew about the resources available to them, right now? The fact is, no one needs to put up with any kind of domestic violence, and the National Domestic Violence Hotline, family law attorneys and countless other programs are available to offer information and guidance in this regard.

Domestic violence and federal gun possession laws

If you are convicted of a felony domestic violence charge, the Federal Gun Control Act of 1968 bans you from possessing a firearm. The Lautenberg Amendment, which was passed in 1996, bans individuals who have been convicted of a misdemeanor domestic violence charge from possessing a firearm.

Domestic violence and stalking

It is not uncommon for domestic violence allegations to also include allegations relating to stalking. Courts recognize that it is not uncommon for an aggrieved spouse or significant other to falsely accuse his or her partner of stalking merely out of anger, or to make such accusations in order to gain the upper hand in divorce or other kinds of legal proceedings. For this reason, even if you have been accused of stalking, courts will be open to hear your side of the story during your criminal defense proceedings.
