Obtaining an Order of Protection Without Filing for Divorce
Protect your client before the divorce proceeding begins.
When a client is concerned for their safety, or their children’s safety, it is possible to acquire an order of protection all before the divorce proceedings begin. This can help the client gain possession of the residence and can even prevent the offending spouse from doing certain things, such as contacting your client or even possessing or purchasing a gun. This white paper reviews the conditions behind getting an order of protection and the difference between that and injunctions against harassment.
