Restraining orders, called protective orders by the Colorado legislature, are filed in the courts due to one party's physical or emotional abuse toward another party. Civil protective orders are the ones related to family law, as they are not attached to a crime or a bond condition. These civil orders last indefinitely, or until it is lifted by the person who initiated it.

Initially, a temporary restraining order will be filed and served to the offending party. A hearing will then be scheduled to determine if a permanent protective order is needed, and both sides have an opportunity to present their cases at this time. If the party who was served the protective order fails to appear at the hearing, the court will assume he or she has agreed to the permanent order.
With extensive experience as a prosecutor, Anne Marie Pignatiello is fully prepared to fight for your rights during the entire protection order process. She has worked with victims of these types of crimes, and she will approach your case with the thorough attention, dedication and empathy it deserves.
