Atlanta Restraining Order Attorneys

Protection Is Available for You & Your Family

If you or your children find yourselves faced with domestic violence, you need protection. Often, victims are plagued with fear, misguided guilt, and sadness. If this is the case, you are not alone. There is help for you through the courts and law enforcement.

Depending on the circumstances of your case, your court-assigned protective order can:

  • Restrict the offender from physical proximity to you and to specific locations
  • Restrain the offender from committing further acts of harassment
  • Award temporary child custody to the petitioner
  • In some situations, grant temporary financial aid to the petitioner
  • Provide temporary housing to the petitioner and their kids if needed

Talk with an experienced Atlanta family law attorney to evaluate obtaining a protective order.

How It Works

In a case of domestic violence, it is important to go to the police as soon as possible. Additionally, contact our Atlanta restraining order lawyers and we can walk you through the paperwork. Typically, there must be a hearing with the offending party, the petitioner, and a judge for a protective order to be assigned. However, in emergency cases, the judge may assign an ex parte order that is immediately effective, though temporary. After that, a hearing can be scheduled for a longer-lasting protective order.
