Fort Worth And Burleson Protective Order Attorneys

Texas law provides a remedy for people who feel unsafe in the presence of another household member. Protective orders are a civil, not a criminal, order that protects you from harm by that family or household member. They are useful in dealing with a variety of domestic issues, including harassment, threatening actions, abusive behavior, drug use or problems arising from mental illness.

Protective orders are flexible: they can order the other person to stay away from you or to refrain from unwanted behaviors. They may also instruct the offender to attend parenting classes, get a mental health assessment, drug testing and evaluation or anger management counseling.

Orders of protection can be obtained either in family court or district court. In Fort Worth, the location is 200 E. Weatherford, 2nd Floor West, Fort Worth, TX 76196. It is a busy place.

Representation For Fraudulent Domestic Violence Claims

Not all protective order petitions seek protection. Many are filed maliciously to cause trouble for the accused person, or to damage them in upcoming divorce or child custody proceedings. In such cases, our attorneys represent the accused person in protective orders hearings, explaining his or her side of the story, and putting him or her in a sympathetic light.
