An accusation of domestic abuse often results in a temporary "Order for Protection." This court order prohibits the accused from entering the home and having any contact with the accuser and, in some cases, the children. When a temporary order is granted, a subsequent evidentiary hearing is held to determine if an Order for Protection should be granted and how the issues of custody, parenting time and financial support should be addressed. An Order for Protection after an evidentiary hearing typically lasts for one year. Orders for Protection are serious and should be handled with care. Our attorneys give great care and attention to every domestic abuse case we handle.
