Establishing an Order of Protection
Under Texas State Law, an individual can obtain an order of protection to prevent any continuation of family violence, sexual assault and other threatening acts.
What is defined as family violence?
- Action by a family member or other member of a household that is intended to cause physical harm
- Any threat of violence
- Abuse of a child
An order or protection can be helpful in doing the following:
- Keeping the offender from committing acts of violence towards you in the future
- Not allowing them near schools or day-cares, thereby protecting your children
- Protecting you from future harassment or threats by halting all communication with you
Talk With Our Firm About Your Options
You may be eligible for an order of protection as long as they find sufficient evidence to show that some act of violence has occurred and will most likely happen again. These situations are very much on a case-by-case basis and completely determined by the court.
Consult with our Dallas family law attorney so that we can apply for a protective order on your behalf. We can navigate through the legal system, fill out your application, and hopefully minimize the amount of time it takes to obtain the order.
