Houston Protective Orders Lawyers

Family violence is a devastating occurrence that affects Texans each and every day. To protect people from the traumatic effects of family violence, the law offers protection for any victims of family violence in Houston in the form of protective orders.

At Diggs & Sadler, our Houston family violence Protective Order attorneys are firmly dedicated to protecting the safety of our clients. Time is of the essence when filing for a protective order, and our legal team is ready to do everything in our power to get you the protection you need continue on with your life.

Who Can Obtain a Protective Order?

If you are filing for a family violence protective order in Houston, you are eligible to receive protection from any individual you have the following ties to:

  • Blood relative
  • Related by marriage
  • A person whom you had an intimate, romantic, or dating relationship with
  • Household member
  • A previous household member
  • People that have a child together

Though protective orders do offer some legal protection, people do unfortunately sometimes violate them. If you believe that your protective order has been violated, call the police as soon as possible to prevent any further damage.

People often use the term "protective order" and "restraining order" interchangeably. Additionally, many people who are served with a temporary restraining order (TRO) mistakenly believe they have been served with a protective order. Temporary restraining orders are different than protective orders. While a party can request a temporary restraining order ex parte (meaning without the other party being present), courts can only issue a permanent protective order after holding a hearing that both parties attend.
