Orders of Protection

It is common for an order of protection to be served on you if you are accused of domestic violence or arrested on domestic battery charges. The person alleging the abuse will appear in front of a judge and ask for an emergency order of protection to be issued. Once this order is put in place, it may prevent you from contacting your family members, and it may place a number of other restrictions on your ability to enter your home or spend time with your children. Even if you believe you have been falsely accused, you will be required to abide by an emergency order of protection, and any violations of the terms of the order could lead to additional criminal charges.

After you are served with an emergency order of protection, you will be given a future date for a hearing in which you will be able to fight the allegations. At this hearing, the judge will decide whether to extend the order of protection. If a long-term order of protection is put in place, it can significantly affect multiple parts of your life. You may be forced to move out of your home, and you could lose custody of your children. To prevent these issues, you need an experienced attorney who can assist you as you defend against allegations of domestic violence.
