Protective Orders

Defend Yourself Against A Protective Order

Protective OrdersA protective order, also known as a restraining order, is a court order that is often granted in situations of alleged domestic violence. In the initial hearing, the accused generally doesn’t have a chance to defend themselves. The judge will hear the accuser’s story and will typically grant a temporary protective order that prevents the accused from contacting the alleged victim without legal repercussions. Then, in a second hearing, the accused has an opportunity to present their side of the story before the judge decides whether or not to issue another order.
