i need to find the best family lawyer for a family member. She's is a victim of a abuse and control for 9years. The abuser is a law enforcement. my family member got a temporary restraining order and now it has been lifted after he has made a restraining order against her too. Is that possible? and is it because hes a law enforcement with connections and power?
You are correct. You need a very good lawyer. I would search AVVO for a certified family law specialist in your area. Restraining orders and domestic violence are very complex issues that require excellent representation.
If you want to know why it was lifted you need to get a copy of each parties pleadings and thde judge's orders and take them to a family law attorney. No, the restraining orders statutes do not say that orders can be lifted if you are a law officer (connected and powerful or not). There is a reason it was lifted (the pleadings may tell you) but it was not connections and power.
