Bringing a qualified attorney to your restraining order hearing will greatly improve your chances of success. Your lawyer understands the rules of evidence -- how to properly admit the things that you want the judge to hear, and how to suppress the facts that might hurt your case. A good attorney will also know how to effectively examine witnesses, how to frame the issues, and generally how to present your case in the most favorable light possible.
Restraining orders are public records. If you are the subject of a restraining order, you may be denied employment or a professional license. You will also be denied the right to purchase or possess firearms. Further, you can be arrested if you violate the terms of the judge's order. That's a headache you don't need.

There are many possible strategies and tactics at restraining order hearings, but only an expert can determine the best plan of action for your particular case.
