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.
