Understanding the Consequences of a Protective Order
A protective order can be issued against the accused offender even before they are convicted for domestic violence. The order can be temporary, permanent, or based on an emergency situation, but all have serious consequences, often impacting the basic freedoms of the accused.
Based on the details of the offense, a protective order can:
- Order the abuser to stop contacting the victims
- Order the abuser to move out of their home
- Remove all child custody rights from the abuser
- Require the abuser to surrender their right to bear firearms
- Order the abuser to continue making child support or alimony payments
