Worcester Protective Order Lawyer
Protective Orders in Worcester
A protective order is issued by the court to keep one individual from communicating with, approaching or physically touching another. It is issued when it is considered that abuse could occur. Previous acts of domestic violence, stalking or harassment can provide grounds for a protective order being filed. These orders can be short-term or long-term, depending on the circumstances. If a protective order has been issued against you, or you are in need of one, you are urged to contact a Worcester divorce lawyer for fast-acting legal assistance.
At Kovacs Law, P.C., we understand the pain and difficulties surrounding issuance of protective orders. Often families, including children, are involved and our firm is very sensitive to the dynamics of these situations. When an individual receives a protective order, they may be effectively shut out of their own home, and removed from contact with their children. Alternatively, if you are facing abuse we will work hard to stop it from continuing.
