Protective Orders And Violent Crimes Attorney
Protective orders (commonly known as restraining orders) provide a means for victims of violent crimes to gain legal protection from the alleged abuser. Protective orders can be pursued by anyone, but they are typically used in situations that involve personal relationships and domestic violence.
Understanding Stability When You Are Worried About Your Future
Heated arguments can quickly escalate into frightening situations. At Kevin Moser Law, PLLC, we are sensitive to the complex nature of these issues. Many victims know they need protection but do not want the abuser to face legal consequences. In others, the alleged abuser did not physically harm the victim, but still found him or herself arrested when law enforcement responded to a report of violence.
The Protective Order Process
There is no single approach to resolving these issues, but the law does provide some guidance. When an initial report of violence occurs, the victim may obtain an emergency protective order (EPO), which immediately grants a temporary restraining order against the alleged abuser.
The EPO only lasts for a certain number of days, until a hearing can take place to determine whether or not a long-term order, or domestic violence order (DVO), is necessary.
As with any criminal charge, false allegations do happen. Our job at Kevin Moser Law, PLLC, is to protect our clients to the fullest extent of the law, whether they have suffered as a result of physical abuse or they are struggling with the consequences of a protective order filed against them.
