Protective Orders

If family violence has occurred in the past and a client is fearful that it may occur again in the future, filing an Application Protective Order can help protect the client and their family. Family violence is defined as "an act by a member of a family or household against another member of the family or household that is intended to result in physical harm, bodily injury, assault, or sexual assault OR that is a threat that reasonably places the member in fear of imminent physical harm, bodily injury, assault, or sexual assault…" To qualify for a Protective Order a party must be able to show that family violence has occurred AND is likely to occur in the future. A member of a dating relationship, an adult member of a marriage or any adult on behalf of a child may apply for a protective order.
