Understanding The 50B Protective Order With Help From A Leland Restraining Order Lawyer

In North Carolina, the 50B protective order is a restraining order that can be obtained without you even being in the courtroom. It is valid for 10 days and can be extended in a subsequent hearing. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for a woman to accuse her husband of domestic abuse or other family violence and seek a 50B restraining order for purposes of gaining the upper hand in divorce or child custody matters. Do not make the mistake of attending your domestic violence hearing without an attorney. You could lose valuable rights, including your rights under the U.S. Constitution's Second Amendment.

Our criminal defense attorneys will defend you against these accusations of domestic violence and seek to protect your rights.
