What Does a Protective Order Do?

A family violence protective order is intended to prevent family violence or stalking by placing restrictions on an offending party who previously committed acts of family violence. In this, family violence is defined as when a member of the family or household either physically harms another, threatens to harm another, or abuses a child.

A family violence protective order can prohibit:

  • Committing further acts of violence
  • Harassment and threatening the victim
  • Going near a school or day care center
  • Removal of property
  • Child custody, possession and child support
  • Residing at or visiting a specific property
  • Possession of a firearm

Assisting with the Emotional & Physical Issues of a Case

Working with a family lawyer can help ensure that your protective order is properly drafted, filed, and upheld. A protective order should be filed as soon as possible after the incident. Afterward, the court will set a hearing within two weeks, unless there is a clear and present danger of violence. Our law firm fully devotes our time and resources to every case, so we can ensure that your family is protected under a family guidance protective order.
