Palo Pinto Attorney for Protective Orders in Divorce Cases

For victims of spousal abuse, the period where you are seeking to end the marriage can be one of the most dangerous. If your spouse has hit or hurt you before, and you are trying to get a divorce, a protective order may make it less likely that your spouse will use violence or threats to stop you from leaving them. When you get a protective order, your spouse can be immediately ordered to leave the marital home, regardless of whose name it is in.

Two Types of Civil Protective Orders in Parker County

The first type of protective order The Law Offices of Kary L. Key will likely seek on your behalf is a temporary ex parte protective order. This is an order that the judge signs based on an affidavit that is presented on your behalf. We need only to show the judge that the abuser presents a clear and present danger of violence against you or your children. This order may last up to 20 days, and it can be extended if necessary.

We can also seek a permanent protective order for you, which can last up to two years, or longer in some cases. Your abuser would have a chance to respond and be heard, but our lawyers will not back down from fighting for you.

Sometimes, when in a contentious child custody or divorce case, a party may apply for a protective order for strategic purposes only.
