Domestic Violence Restraining Order / Protective Orders
If you have been the victim of domestic violence, learn about your options when it comes to obtaining a temporary restraining order/protective order. This order can last for as long as 18 months. A New Orleans family lawyer at our firm can help you request this order.
What Does a Protective Order Do?
A restraining order can effectively protect you by preventing the offender from:
- Contacting you directly
- Contacting you through third parties
- Coming to your home, place of work, school, or any other places you visit regularly
- Having child custody/visitation rights
