Whether you are seeking a protection order or defending yourself from one, the divorce attorneys at Pomper Price, LLC are here to help.
Break-ups can be difficult, especially when domestic violence issues are involved. If you are in a situation where you are experiencing domestic violence or other harassing behaviors from your ex, it may become necessary to obtain a civil protection order to protect yourself and your children.
To obtain a civil protection order, you must first apply for a temporary protection order with the court. If granted, the court will then set you for a permanent protection order hearing to determine if the order will be made permanent. The standards for a temporary protection order versus a permanent protection order are different, so it's helpful to have knowledgeable legal counsel to represent you through the process.
This is especially so if you apply for the protection order through your divorce or child custody case as the protection order could have an impact on the court's determinations regarding custody. In order to discuss your protection order issue, schedule a free, one-hour consultation with one of our divorce attorneys today.
Our divorce attorneys also defend clients against protections orders that are baseless or unwarranted. Unfortunately, protection orders can be improperly used to gain a strategic advantage in divorce/custody cases. In these cases, it is extremely important to have skilled and experienced counsel by your side to ensure that your case does not suffer as a result of the other side's request for a protection order. If you wish to discuss your case further, please schedule a free, one hour consultation today.
