Protection Orders And Domestic Violence
Domestic disputes often occur due to the emotional turmoil that arises from divorce and child custody issues. The Lampe Law Office, LLC, provides legal representation to both the victims and the accused in domestic disputes and family law matters.
Domestic violence claims can be brought up in either civil or criminal court. At the Lampe Law Office, LLC, we have represented many parties in domestic disputes. It is important that a party in a domestic dispute seeks legal advice in order to ensure the protection of his or her rights.
Civil Protection Order
A Civil Protection Order (CPO) is a method to limit or prohibit contact between a victim and abuser. A CPO is granted to victims in Domestic Relations proceedings who have a special relationship with an abuser and meet the legal definition of being in danger of domestic violence. CPOs can last for years at a time, and a violation of a CPO can result in jail time for the abuser. There is no cost to obtain a CPO. Types of CPOs include:
- Temporary Protection Orders
- Stalking Civil Protection Orders
- Stalking Protection Orders
Temporary Restraining Order
In a divorce, a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) will likely be issued. This order forbids the spouses from stalking, threatening, hitting, abusing, harassing or injuring one another.
