Complicated Cases Demand An Experienced Domestic Violence Attorney
You need to act fast if you believe your security or the safety of your children is at risk. When loved ones or a former spouse pose such a threat or inflict actual violence, you need to take immediate steps to stop such abuse or threats of violence. Like a restraining order, a protective order can serve as a way to effectively stop the violence and protect the victim.
At the Bertolino Law Firm, we can work with you to help you obtain a protective order. In Texas, a protective order is a civil court order issued to prevent continuing acts of family violence. According to the state Attorney General's office, a protective order can prohibit the violent family member from:
- Committing further acts of violence
- Harassing or threatening the victim
- Going to or near a school or daycare center attended by the protected child
In order to obtain a protective order, the victim and offender must:
- Be related by blood or marriage
- Be living together or previously lived together
- Have a child together
