Protecting People Against Domestic Abuse
No one – especially children – should have to live in a violent home. A protective order can protect children and the victims of domestic violence from further harm, creating a safe space for them while underlying family law issues are resolved by the courts. A judge can issue a protective order that applies to family members, relatives and domestic partners. Another option is a peace order, which provides protection from co-workers, neighbors, doctors and others who are engaging in abusive or threatening behavior.
The Dark Side Of Protective Orders
Protective orders have immense power, as they should. Unfortunately, that power can be misused to gain the upper hand in divorce or custody battles. It is sadly not uncommon for one parent to use the threat of a protective order to strengthen their position. There are no winners when protective orders are used in this manner, and we will work diligently to obtain an outcome that protects the rights of the accused and is in the best interest of the children.
