Restraining/Protective Orders

Henderson Restraining Order Lawyer

Temporary & Long-Term Protective Orders

Many divorces are emotionally volatile but, in some cases, spouses can fear for their safety and the safety of their children and loved ones. In these cases, legal action may be needed in order to protect one or both parties as they complete their divorce. This can be achieved by securing a protective order (or a restraining order).

Our team at Ford & Friedman is well-versed in the steps that need to be taken to secure these orders and protect our clients from potentially dangerous situations. If you are facing a divorce or a family law matter and you and your child's safety is an issue, then our firm is ready draft and submit a petition for a protective order on your behalf.

If you need protection from the courts, contact us online or call (702) 904-9898 to speak with a trusted Henderson restraining order attorney at Ford & Friedman today.

How to Obtain a Protective Order in Nevada?

Securing a protective order first requires the petitioner (you) to prove you have domestic relations with the accused. In divorce matters, this is easily proven, but the petitioner must also prove that the accused demonstrates a sense of real danger of harm. If they can, a temporary restraining order can be issued that same day. If a motion for a temporary restraining order is not contested, it can result in a permanent protective order that could be extended for as long as a year.

What Does a Protective Order Do?

A protective order can keep the accused party away from:

  • The residence of the petitioner
  • The petitioner's place of employment
  • The school or university of the petitioner
  • The business of the petitioner

These protections can extend to any family or household members of the petitioner, so children can be protected as well. At Ford & Friedman, our Henderson restraining order attorneys understand the long-term implications of domestic violence accusations in family law decisions, and we will work to achieve the best possible outcome on your behalf.
