Quick Action To Obtain Protection Orders

Danielsen WesthoffIf you and/or your children are in need of protection from domestic abuse, we are here to help. Protection order cases come with their own sets of intricacies and rules, which the attorneys at Danielsen Westhoff can help you understand and ensure the safety of your family.

The first step of the process is to obtain a temporary protection order. The court usually only hears one side of the story before issuing a temporary order, and the restrained party has a chance to deny or explain the complaining party's allegations at a hearing within 14 days. It is important to be prepared for this hearing as the issuance of a permanent protection order will become a part of your record.

The attorneys at Danielsen Westhoff represent people on either side of protection order proceedings. They also represent people who need advice about:

  1. Preparing for the hearing on a permanent protection order
  2. Protecting your interests on child custody or parenting time issues in a divorce or paternity case with a restraining order in place
