Orders For Protection

When a man or woman fears for his or her safety or the safety of his or her children, an order for protection is an important legal tool. An order of protection can restrict the alleged abuser's access and provide the legal framework for taking further action in the event the order is ignored or otherwise violated.

If you are seeking an order of protection or find yourself accused of abuse, it is crucial to have an experienced attorney pursuing your interests. At de Beer & Associates, we make sure our clients understand what they are faced with and develop effective strategies based on their unique circumstances and needs.

What Is An Order For Protection?

An order of protection is a restraining order that can be sought and issued in cases of alleged domestic violence between couples. This includes married coupled, formerly married couples, cohabitating or formerly cohabitating couples, or parents who have a child together.

If granted, an order of protection forbids the alleged abuser from making any contact with his or her counterpart, including in-person contact or electronic contact such as phone calls, emails or text messages.
