Protective Order And Divorce Attorneys

If you feel that you, your children or other family members are in any sort of danger from your spouse during a divorce proceeding, a protective order (also known as a restraining order) might be a necessary safeguard. Even the smallest threat can be a sign of dangerous activity to follow.Speaking with an experienced attorney about your concerns doesn’t have to lead to a protective order, but it could lead to what might have been inevitable anyway: filing for divorce. Once a divorce petition is filed, it might cause your spouse to react violently, but it’s usually important to be the first to file. You can control the framing of the debate when you file first. And you can make sure that a protective order accompanies the filing.

At Scott M. Brown & Associates, our familiarity with protective orders and the effectiveness of our legal services come from years of experience representing both types of parties:

  • We represent people filing protective orders and people who have been served with protective orders and accused of domestic violence.

Protective Orders In Houston And Surrounding Areas

With offices in Pearland, Texas, our skilled and responsive attorneys assist a diverse spectrum of clients with specific needs and objectives. When you file a petition for a protective order, the court will grant you a temporary protective order until your court date, at which time the judge will determine whether you will be granted a final protective order.

The person whom you request the order against can be ordered to:

  • Move to a different residence, away from you and your children
  • Cease contact with you and your children entirely
  • Follow all orders of custody, child support and spousal support

Had A Protective Order Filed Against You?

The combination of a protective order and divorce proceedings isn’t uncommon. One party can use a protective order as an aggressive bargaining chip in custody, visitation, child support and spousal support disputes.

We don’t fall for such tricks. We work to prevent the issuance of orders and seek to mitigate order restrictions. Our attorneys will fight to protect your parental rights and preserve your custody and visitation rights.
