Waldorf Protective Orders Lawyer

Protective Orders were passed into law as there are many persons who seek to take advantage of someone in a weaker position. Often the individual most in danger is so fearful or threatened that they are unable to effectively communicate to the court their concern. This can happen to men as well as to women. The court seeks to issue protective orders to keep violence from erupting and to assure that everyone is safe. Sometimes individuals may seek to use a protective order hearing to remove someone from the home or gain custody of children. The impact of domestic violence can affect the employment or immigration status of the people involved. Although anyone in danger should always contact the police first and secure their safety and the safety of their children, contacting our office can be helpful to prepare for the subsequent litigation.

Maryland courts take domestic violence seriously. You do not need an attorney present and can obtain a temporary restraining order in an ex parte hearing. This order, however, only lasts for seven days, and you will need to go to court to obtain a permanent protective order. We would encourage you to consult with an attorney prior to any final hearing.
