It is not uncommon for parties contemplating a divorce or separation to seek a protective order from the court. A Temporary Protective Order (TPO) can be issued upon the application of one party who can allege an act of family violence battery or stalking. These orders can be granted the same day they are applied for and result in one party being immediately ejected from the home. TPO’s can also make provisions for child support and child custody. A protective order can have a serious effect on the financial resources of the ejected party.
If you need the protection of the court or have been served with a Temporary Protective Order you need legal counsel. Once issued the order can be good for one year or up to three years. If you are considering seeking a TPO or have been served with one contact Crawford & Boyle to represent you.
