My girlfriend put a restraining order against me. I got a letter from the sheriff’s office about a court process to pick up at the sheriff’s department. I Honestly don’t know what to do.
Look it has nothing to do with a court process. They come to your house with a process. My expectation is that they want to arrest you. Retain counsel for a few hundred bucks so that counsel can tell the sheriff that you are represented so they need to stop contacting you period. Best wishes.
The response above is general information related to law and not intended as legal advice since it’s impracticable to provide thorough, accurate advice based upon the query without additional details. It is highly recommended that one should seek advice from an attorney licensed in your jurisdiction by setting up a confidential meeting. Moreover, this response does not constitute the creation of an attorney-client relationship since this message is not a confidential communication because it was posted on a public website, thereby publicly disclosing the information, which is another reason to setup a confidential meeting with an attorney.
Were you served with the Restraining Order? If not, this is the Sheriff's lazy way to get you served. If not, they will come to your home or work to serve you with it. If you have already been served, it might be that they want to interrogate you regarding a Violation of the RO.
