Protecting You From Domestic Violence And Unfair Accusations
Domestic violence is an extremely serious issue. To help protect victims of abuse or harassment, our system of justice provides for orders of protection. Orders of protection can be obtained by one person against another if there is a domestic relationship between the parties. When an order of protection is obtained, lives are quickly changed.
Most orders of protection are sought because of clear abuse and harassment that must stop. Unfortunately, these orders can also be sought for the wrong purposes, perhaps to gain leverage in divorce proceedings.
Whether you were unfairly served with an order of protection or you need to protect yourself, an experienced Libertyville domestic violence attorney can help. At Beermann Law Group, Ltd, we have more than 40 years of experience representing individuals throughout Lake County, Cook County and DuPage County, Illinois, who are struggling with domestic violence and other family law matters. We know this can be an emotional time, but we are here to guide you through the legal process and offer the counsel you need.
Understanding The Severity Of Orders Of Protection
When an emergency order of protection is filed, it affects the liberty of the person against whom it is filed, without any notice. An emergency order of protection stops all communication with the other person. In some situations, this means one parent could file an order of protection against the other parent, which would take away that parent’s ability to live at home and see their kids. Although the orders can be fought, it takes time and a great deal of emotional energy.
