Illinois Domestic Assault Lawyers · Orders of

Protection

An order of protection can apply to someone in your household or close circle (a

spouse, partner, roommate, family member, boyfriend, girlfriend), a former

partner (ex-spouse, ex-boyfriend, ex-girlfriend) or a co-worker or acquaintance,

based on:

• Assault (threatening gestures or language)

• Battery (physical contact or injury)

• Sexual violence

• Threats or intimidation

• Harassment (hang-up calls, verbal abuse, destruction of property)

• Stalking (following, unwanted visits, phone calls or gifts, showing up at

your workplace or child's school)

• Online/electronic harassment (chat rooms, Facebook, text messages)

An order of protection may be granted for up to two years. Typically it prohibits

the person from having any contact with you or your children, directly or through

third parties. It may contain greater or lesser restrictions, depending on the

threat level, prior incidents and other facts of the case.

Our experienced attorneys will accompany you to court to request an order of

protection and we will represent you in future proceedings to modify or rescind

the order. We will take swift action if the person violates any provision of a

protective order.

Representation of the Accused

The court will usually err in favor of the person who is seeking protection. We

know that orders of protection are sometimes abused to get revenge against an

ex or to gain advantage in divorce or custody proceedings. Our lawyers have a

strong background in criminal law and experience on both sides of these

proceedings. We will fight an unwarranted order of protection or advocate for

you to ease the restrictions, especially if you are being kept away from your

children. We can also defend you if you face criminal charges for domestic

violence or violating an order of protection.
