What Is The Impact Of A Protective Order?

Disagreements in relationships, especially those with a spouse or romantic partner, are often emotionally charged. If someone has falsely accused you of domestic violence, you will likely have many questions about what you may face legally. You are probably worried about the impact of such a charge on your future. You may also have concerns about the immediate problems you are facing when a judge grants a temporary or final protective order. This civil court process orders one person not to do certain things to protect the person who asked for the protective order.

When a judge issues a temporary protective order against you, it could include:

  • Leaving your home
  • Loss of custody of your children
  • No communication with the petitioner and the petitioner's family
  • When a protective order becomes final, a judge could order you to complete therapy, determine you are responsible for court costs and the petitioner's attorney fees, and not allow you to keep any weapons or firearms

To defend yourself against domestic violence charges, you need a lawyer who truly cares about your future. The Wiggs Law Group will listen to the details of your case and help you understand your legal options as you face criminal charges.
