filing a restraining or protective order in texas

Many people think domestic abuse is only about physical acts of violence, but it can include issues such as threats, emotional abuse, harassment and stalking. If you or your children are being threatened or abused, you can file a civil protective order.

Civil protective orders or restraining orders are very common in family violence cases. When one is filed, the alleged abuser may be banned from all contact with the victim, including staying away from his or her home, workplace and school. If the abuser violates the order, the police will arrest him or her. We will represent you at hearings and can work to keep the abuser in jail when appropriate.

We can also, in civil court, file for protective orders on behalf of our clients.
