Domestic Violence Restraining Order Law, and How These Cases Work

If you are the victim of domestic violence or abuse, you have the right to get a Restraining Order to protect you and your family. In New Mexico, restraining orders are officially referred to as Orders of Protection.

Domestic violence is a crime in all 50 states. There are many forms of domestic abuse. Sometimes the victim is an adult, sometimes it’s the children, and often it’s both. Examples of abuse include unwanted touching or hitting, punching, slapping, pushing, shoving, or pulling hair. Sometimes it involves threatened physical injury, serious bodily harm, or even death.

If you or your children have been subject to domestic violence or abuse, in any form, R. Don Lohbeck at is committed to helping you stop the abuse and protect your family.

We understand the serious emotional harm and trauma that violence and abusive behavior can cause. We can get restraining orders and seek other protections to help insure that you and your children are safe from harm.

In these cases, you only have one chance to get it right. Don’t try to do this alone.

In these cases, it’s important that the Petition for Order of Protection is filled out correctly, that the proper information is included, and that the other side be served timely and correctly, consistent with the court’s rules.

But we also recognize that restraining orders are sometimes brought by people for the wrong reasons. We have represented a lot of people, both men and women, who have been unjustly and falsely accused of domestic violence or abuse. When we believe this is the case, we work overtime to make sure that people are treated fairly and that unjustly brought restraining orders are dismissed.

Restraining order cases are complex. The hearings are typically scheduled within a week or two, which means that there usually isn’t a lot of time to prepare. That’s why it’s important to hire an Experienced Albuquerque Domestic Violence Restraining Order Lawyer like R. Don Lohbeck at who has successfully handled these kinds of cases before.

The evidence at the court hearing must be presented correctly. All of the Court’s Rules of Civil Procedure and the Rules of Evidence must be strictly followed. You cannot, for example, just walk-in with letters or even sworn statements from witnesses. This kind of evidence is usually not admissible under the rules. Experience demonstrates that if you try to do this without a lawyer, you stand a very good chance of losing the case.

Smart, Aggressive, Experienced Legal Representation. Guaranteed.

You only have one chance to get it right. The consequences of losing a restraining order case can be serious and significant.
