Protecting What’s Most Important to You
Are you concerned that contact with a certain individual is harmful to you or your child? Are you worried that your soon-to-be former spouse is tampering with marital property that has not yet been divided? In these and many other cases, you can protect your family and your property by filing a protective or restraining order. Unfortunately, determining which type of order you need can be confusing.

Understanding the Orders Available
Many people do not understand the difference between a protective order and a restraining order. A protective order is designed to shield someone from abuse. A restraining order, on the other hand, can have varied impacts, including preventing one party in a divorce from disposing of assets or awarding temporary child custody.
If you or your family is in danger, our team can provide assistance by filing for a temporary protective order. When the court grants this order, which is often done the same day, a hearing will be scheduled. We will represent you at the hearing and serve as an information resource, answering any questions that arise.
If you are seeking a restraining order to protect your property or to obtain temporary child custody, we can represent you, too. Our firm will work hard to help you reach your objectives.
