Family life isn’t always easy. Although most parties work to resolve their issues, relationships in a family can be fragile. Sometimes, these relationships dissolve to the point of no reconciliation. It’s possible that you are in a situation where the relationships between you and your family members, including a significant other, have reached their breaking point. Arguments happen and sometimes they come to a boil. If you have been in a domestic dispute or have been accused of or charged with domestic violence, you may have had a protective order placed against you.
A protective order is a type of restraining order that can be imposed on someone related to you when you do not wish to be contacted by them. It is typically put into place when someone feels threatened by another member of their family. Having a protective order placed against you can infringe on your rights. You may have to find another place to stay until the protective order is lifted or expires. You may not be able to own a firearm during this period of time. And it is possible that a protective order placed against you will even show up on your record. Fight for your rights with a Dallas domestic violence attorney.
