Temporary and Extended Protection Orders

If you or your children are the victims of domestic violence, you may be able to obtain a protection order for both you and your children. The initial application is reviewed by the Court and they make an initial determination on whether to issue a temporary protection order. If they find enough cause to issue a temporary protection order, or, even if they don’t issue the order but have enough concern to justify a hearing, the Court will set a hearing within thirty days. At that hearing the court will then decide whether to issue an extended protection order for a period up to one year.

If you have questions on whether you need a protection order or if you need assistance in filling out the protection order application, please contact the Law Offices of Andriea A. Aden, Esq. at 775-622-9245.
