Cases involving spousal or child abuse often result in the issuing of an Order of Protection. An Order of Protection is a type of restraining order that prevents the alleged abuser from having any further contact with the person requesting the order.
The order can also require you to move if you currently live with the petitioner, and adhere to other court orders that may have been issued earlier. When the court receives a petition for an Order of Protection, it will usually issue a temporary restraining order.
A hearing will then be scheduled a few weeks later to determine if the order will be permanent. If you are the subject of an Order of Protection, a Tampa divorce lawyer can explain the laws pertaining to your case and discuss you rights. A proven attorney can also represent you at your hearing and safeguard your interests.
