What Are Orders of Protection and Restraining Orders ?

Restraining Orders in San Antonio, TX

Restraining orders and orders of protection are typically used in different situations. An order of protection is usually used to prevent violent behavior or harassment. Some orders of protection will allow some contact, while others will allow no contact, depending on the situation. You can request an order of protection through both criminal and family court. Restraining orders differ from orders of protection in the fact that they are usually used to prevent someone from taking some sort of action. For example, requesting that marital property not be sold during a divorce until a hearing where both parties are present. Restraining orders are commonly used during divorces. However, restraining orders can sometimes also be used to protect someone in cases of violence and abuse. The Law Office of Perkins & Janis can guide you through the process of filing for both an order of protection or a restraining order.
