- You have always been the primary caretaker and believe that it is in your child(ren)’s best interest that you remain as such.

- Your former spouse is not complying with the parenting plan and you need help enforcing it.
- You have children from a nonmarital relationship and want to know about your rights.

Defending Yourself Against An Order Of Protection
You may have been wrongly served with an order of protection or restraining order by a family or household member. In some cases, a spouse or former spouse will request an order of protection in an attempt to seek leverage in a child custody or divorce proceeding.
When used appropriately, an order of protection provides a measure of legal protection to those who need it. When an order of protection is abused, it can be unjust and destructive. Not only does it infringe upon your rights, but it may also appear on your criminal record if you do not take steps to fight it. We have extensive experience obtaining and defending against civil protection orders.
