Protective orders, sometimes known as restraining orders, are court orders that prohibit one individual from contacting, communicating with, or visiting certain party. This is intended to guard the protected party against threats of violence or harassment. If you are looking to take legal steps to protect yourself from from threats made against you by a family member or intimate partner, a protective order may be an option. To obtain a protective order, you must demonstrate credible threats of violence, or repeated harassment/stalking. Whether you are facing these threats or being accused of such actions, Dillon Legal Group is reading to advocate for your rights in protective order proceedings.
Criminal Record Expungement
Employers and landlords are increasingly relying on criminal background checks to screen potential employees and tenants. Even if you served no jail time, the mere existence of a criminal record can be a life sentence. You face the potential for stigmatization, fewer educational opportunities, and reduced earning potential. This is especially true in Indiana, where many records are easily searchable by the public. Fortunately, changes to the law in 2013 and 2014 have dramatically expanded the number of Hoosiers who are eligible to have their criminal records expunged.
However, you may only petition for an expungement in Indiana once in your lifetime. If the petition is denied – for example, as a result of improper filing – it may not be possible to re-file it. You will lose your opportunity for those records to be expunged. It is absolutely essential that the petition for expungement is done correctly, and the attorneys at Dillon Legal Group are prepared to assist you.
Hardship License / Specialized Driving Privileges
Every year, thousands of Hoosiers face the potential suspension of their driver’s licenses. This can happen as a result of failure to pay traffic tickets, driving under the influence, and a variety of other motor vehicle-related charges. The loss of driving privileges can threaten your livelihood, and ultimately your home or family. You shouldn’t have to choose between losing your job and committing a crime by driving with a suspended license. However, you may have options.
A specialized driving permit can restore limited driving privileges if you meet certain criteria. This may allow you to drive to and from work. The attorneys at Dillon Legal Group understand will review the circumstances leading up to the suspension of your license and work with you to present a compelling argument to the court.
