A Temporary Protective Order (TPO) is a court order that helps protect anyone that is being abused, threatened or harassed. A Temporary Protective Order requires the abuser to stay away from you, your home and your work, and prohibits them from contacting you. If the court feels as though your children are at risk, they can also order the abuser to stay away from your children. Temporary Protective Orders are also used for temporary custody matters, child support and possession of vehicles.
Family violence can cause legal, emotional and financial problems. A Temporary Protective Order can protect you and your children by giving you a peace of mind that if the abuser comes close to you, they may face serious legal consequences. On the other hand, if your spouse is seeking a Temporary Protective Order against you, you could be facing serious legal consequences, such as losing your child custody rights or visitation rights.
If you are being victimized by the threat of violence or the act of physical violence by a family member, you may need to file a Temporary Protective Order. A Temporary Protective Order lawyer can help you gather the necessary evidence necessary to obtain the protective order you need. Conversely, if you feel a Temporary Protective Order is unjust, a lawyer can help investigate on your behalf so that your rights are protected.
