Austin Divorce Attorney: Protective orders

Protective Orders in Austin

You should not have to endure harassment, emotional abuse or physical violence from your current or former spouse. You have a right to enjoy a peaceful life, free from domestic violence. An Austin divorce attorney from Menduni Martindill, PLLC can help you petition the court for a protective order against the party who is threatening your safety. We can help you demonstrate to the judge that such an order is necessary on the grounds that your spouse has committed family violence and there is a likelihood that family violence will occur in the future. The violation of such an order can result in an arrest and criminal prosecution.

A protective order against a spouse or partner can include temporary provisions for support and child custody. A lawyer from our firm is prepared to stand by you throughout the process of ending your marriage, from seeking your protective order to filing for divorce and through to the final settlement. We can also help you make a request to have the protective order extended beyond the divorce, so that you do not have to live in fear of your former spouse.

Divorce Lawyer in Austin

If you have been falsely accused of domestic violence, you have recourse against an unjust protective order. Your attorney can file a motion to vacate the protective order , which will reverse the order if you can demonstrate that it is in the best interests of everyone involved. There are cases where one of the parties to a divorce will request a protective order on false pretenses in order to prevent the other party from having access to the children. It often takes considerable preparation and courtroom skill to persuade the judge that the order is not necessary, and to increase your chances of success, we advise you to retain our services for this purpose rather than attempting it on your own.

Contact an Austin divorce attorney if you need help securing a protective order to protect yourself from an abusive spouse.
