What Do Protective Orders Do?
- Prohibit the abuser from going near you, your children, your home, and
place of work
- Prohibit the abuser from contacting you and your children
- Grant you custody of your minor children
How Long Do Protective Orders Last?
Once a protective order has been issued, that order cannot last for more
than one year. However, the protected party can ask the court for an additional
year of enforcement as the expiration date approaches. The court can also
issue emergency and temporary protective orders, though both of those
have very limited time spans.
Defending Accusations of Family Abuse
If you have been falsely accused of family abuse and need assistance defending
against that claim, our team can advocate for you. We can present the
facts of your case to the judge and take action to help prevent a protective
order from being unjustly issued. We understand that sometimes accusations
of domestic violence are made by a party in
child custody cases in an attempt to gain leverage. Our divorce lawyers are adept at identifying
when a protective order is being used to secure an unfair advantage.
