Restraining Order Attorney
If you have had a restraining order or stalking order issued against you in Oregon, I, Shelley L. Fuller, can protect your rights and guide you through the legal process.
Once you have a restraining order filed against you, you have 30 days to request a hearing with the court. If you contest the restraining order, you will generally be granted a hearing within 21 days of the request. If the restraining order has granted temporary custody of a minor child, the hearing will be held within five days.
If you request a hearing and the restraining order is upheld, the court may impose prohibitions on your right to own and possess firearms. It is important to consult with an experienced attorney before making any important decisions about how to proceed.

Helping You Get The Protection You Need
A restraining order can impose a number of harsh restrictions, including forcing you to:
- Leave the family home
- Lose custody and parenting time privileges
- Have no contact with your children and spouse/significant other
- Provide emergency monetary relief
Having a stalking order or restraining order against you does not make you a criminal. However, violating such an order is a criminal offense that carries up to six months in prison for each violation.
Whatever charges you face, it is important to take action as soon as possible. The sooner you hire your own defense lawyer, the better chance you have of obtaining a favorable outcome.
