Restraining orders are granted in issues of serious concern, such as when someone truly fears for their life and wishes to have an order of protection against this person. Oftentimes, they are extremely necessary in instances of domestic violence. If you have obtained a restraining order against someone whom you fear will cause you harm, you may be nervous about whether or not the restraining order can be removed, which is a valid concern.
In most cases, the restraining order can only be removed if either the victim or defendant requests it. If the victim one day decides he or she no longer needs an order of protection against the defendant, the victim can request to have it dropped. If the defendant requests to have the restraining order dropped, a judge will take into account all of the necessary information before allowing this to happen. Therefore, if you are facing a legal situation in which the defendant is pushing to have the order lifted, you will need an aggressive and strongminded Norman domestic violence lawyer to advocate on your behalf.
