Understanding Restraining Orders and Injunctions

A restraining order may pertain to an individual person or to property. The purpose of such an order is to restrain, or prevent, temporarily activities from taking place which are considered detrimental to the party seeking the order. Restraining orders are sometimes known as orders of protection. An emergency temporary restraining order can be pursued for up to a 10-day period without notice being served to the party being restrained. An injunction can be used to prevent the negative activity for periods longer than 10 days. In most cases, an injunction is issued following an initial restraining order, further solidifying the protection offered.

The Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage contains provisions regarding the use of restraining orders and injunctions in family law situations. Section 501 provides that any party to a domestic concern may seek an order or preliminary injunction to obtain relief from:

  • The transfer, concealment, or disposal of assets or property by a party in a manner inconsistent with normal business practices or reasonable behavior;
  • A party removing a child or relocating with a child outside specified jurisdictions;
  • A party infringing upon the rights of the seeking party or of a child; or
  • Any other action from which relief may be necessary.

Protection for Illinois Clients in Family-Related Disputes

Additional details and processes for restraining orders and injunctions are found in the Illinois Civil Code of Procedures. The Civil Code, however, can be extremely complicated for the unprepared. Fortunately, the attorneys at the Davi Law Group maintain a strong working knowledge of the law and incorporate compliance with the law into every action we take. We thoroughly understand what is required and educate clients so that they can make the best decision for their particular situation. Our attorneys are also prepared to advocate on your behalf to help ensure full enforcement of the requested action.

If you are struggling with a family law dispute and would like more information about how a restraining order or an injunction may help you obtain relief, contact our office today. We offer a no-charge initial consultation so that you can meet our team, ask questions, and receive an honest assessment of your case, an approximate $325.00 value.
