Protective Order Provisions
A protective order can include different provisions that limit your access to your family and home. Some of those provisions include:
- No contact: You are barred from communicating with the victim.
- Move out: You may be forced to move out of your home if you share it with the victim.
In many cases, a protective order is first issued on a temporary basis. In order for a judge to issue a permanent order (lasting two years), it is necessary to hold a court hearing. During this hearing, both sides have an opportunity to provide testimony and evidence for why the order should or should not be issued. Attorney Bates can represent you at this and any other hearings with the goal of defeating a proposed protective order that’s been filed against you.
