Need A Restraining Order Or An Order Of Protection?

If you are a victim of domestic violence, you may need to file for an order of protection, also referred to as a restraining order. At the Minneapolis law firm of Groshek Law PA, our experienced family law and divorce lawyers are well-versed in this area of law. We will explain your options and help you obtain protection.

What Is An Order Of Protection?

An order of protection is a civil court order that protects you from your spouse, a family member or a significant other. The order can be limited to certain days, times and places and protect you and your children or just you.

However, because these are often filed in conjunction with domestic violence charges, a judge may be inclined to prevent the abuser from having any contact with you or the children at any time. Orders may be limited to a designated length of time and will be revisited on a regular basis.

We represent individuals and families throughout the Twin Cities with all types of family law and divorce matters.

The Consequences Of An Order Of Protection

Filing for an order of protection gives you the security of knowing that if your spouse, family member or significant other tries to contact you, comes to your house (even if you own the property together) or tries to hurt you, the police will arrest him or her upon notification of the contact. This extends to contact by phone, email, text and social media.
