Restraining Orders

In North Carolina, restraining orders may be obtained to prevent contact between people. The previous relationship between the parties involved determines which type of restraining order is appropriate.


A 50B order, sometimes just called a restraining order, is issued when the the people involved have had previously dated, been married, lived together, or have a close family relationship.


A civil no-contact order (also known as a 50C order), is a court order that aims to prevent contact or stalking by someone you do not have an intimate or familial relationship with, such as an acquaintance, co-worker, neighbor, or stranger.

"I googled lawyers in the area and read the reviews of several lawyers. After reading the reviews of Mr. Pearson and his background, I called Mr. Pearson and was pleasantly surprised he answered the phone and this was at 4:00 PM on a Friday afternoon.  


He is not your typical lawyer. He is amazing. He is able to understand a situation, gather the information and put your best interest in his mind. 


Once meeting him, I was even more impressed with him and staff. I sensed empathy immediately and felt safe with him handling our case. I deeply appreciated his belief in me and mostly want to add that his genuine spirit of humanness and compassion helped us in a difficult situation."   -- B. S.
