A domestic violence situation is not always clear cut. It is often a he said/she said matter but the bottom line is that someone is likely to go to jail and a protective ordered issued.
A Protective Order
A protective order prevents you from:
- Returning to your home.
- Being able to contact your partner.
- Being able to see your children.
- Makes it difficult to get your personal possessions.
- Requires you to turn in your firearms
- In some instances, it can affect your job.
What Should You Do?
You need to take a protective order seriously. Violation of it can result in jail time. While this is an emotional time for you, you need to protect your rights and yourself against additional charges.
