Protective Orders in Texas

Protect Yourself and Your Children from Domestic Violence

Take immediate action to protect yourself and your child if you or your child is a victim of family violence. Existence of family violence may be grounds for a protective order, which would legally remove the abusive individual from your home. Do not hesitate to call your local law enforcement agency or a shelter if you are experiencing abusive behavior from another member of your family. The Law Office of Nita Meador can help you get the protection, comfort, and peace of mind that you need.

What is a protective order?

Protective orders can be issued for family violence. A court shall issue a protective order if the court finds that family violence has occurred and is likely to occur in the future. A protective order may be filed in conjunction with or separate from a Petition for Divorce. This means that you can file for a protective order at the same time you file for a divorce, or you can file for a protective order and seek a divorce at a later date.

If a protective order has been filed against you, you should contact an attorney about representing you at the protective order hearing. Having a protective order issued against you for family violence can have far-reaching and serious consequences. Do not hesitate to get the defense that you need if a bitter or angry family member is attempting to keep you away from your family.
