divorce lawyer Alex DurstQuestion:

I need to have a restraining order removed that was placed against me, but I cannot afford an attorney.

I was told I could write a letter to the judge to get the order removed, but I'm unsure what to include in this letter.

How can I have a restraining order removed without the assistance of an attorney?

Answer:

I am unable to give you legal advice on divorce. I can give general divorce help for men, though, my knowledge is based on Ohio divorce laws where I am licensed to practice.

In general, to have a protection order modified or dismissed, the person who wants the modification or dismissal must file a written motion with the court in the county where the order of protection was issued. A motion is sometimes described to people who do not have an attorney representing them as a "letter to the judge."

Essentially, what you should include in the letter/motion is what you respectfully request that the court do, i.e., remove the protection order, and why it would be right for the court do what you request, i.e., because you are not a threat to her, etc.

You should include as much information as possible about the factual background. Just explain why it is unfair for you to have a restraining order against you, and, more importantly, why it is unnecessary. Make sure that the letter/motion is well-written and grammatically correct with no errors.

After receiving the letter/motion, the court should set the matter for a hearing before the assigned judge or magistrate, which you will have to attend. 

Remember, I am unable to provide you with anything more than divorce tips for men, so please consult with a divorce lawyer in your jurisdiction.
