Protective Order 

Divorces can be stressful. An initiation of divorce can sometimes cause parties to resort to domestic violence. In some other cases, one of the spouses may make exaggerated or false claims on the same. Either way, our protective order lawyer can help, whether it is to have a protective order issued or a false order revoked.

How are protective
orders issued?

To have protective order issued, the party should prove to the court that there has been an act of family violence committed by the other party, and that it is likely to commit the same in the future if an order is not issued.

Forms of Evidence for Protective Orders

The evidence can be in the form of threatening messages, signs of physical abuse like bruises, or testimony from eyewitnesses.

Types of Protective Orders

There are both temporary and final protective orders; the former can be issued without a hearing, while the latter requires a hearing.

Restrictions Imposed by Protective Orders

In the event that a protective issue has been issued, the offender may be restrained from going to the employment place or residence of the victim, and getting in touch with them.

Extensions of Restrictions to Children

These restrictions may be extended to the victim’s children as well, prohibiting the offender from meeting the child or going to the child’s school.

Court Actions for Offender Residency

If the offender lives with the applicant, the court may ask them to vacate.

Navigating Protective Orders with Legal Guidance


Impact of Protective Orders on Firearm Rights

In addition, the offender loses the license to bear arms immediately after the protective order is issued; this may be permanent or temporary and is imposed to protect the victim from danger and violence.

Navigating Legal Complexity of Protective Orders

Protective orders can be a tricky affair, since they include criminal and family law. It is not uncommon for offenders to be charged with criminal assault when the perpetrator resorts to acts of domestic violence. Our Plano Protective Order Lawyer has the experience and expertise to handle such cases.
