Our Frederick and Montgomery County Domestic Violence Attorneys Can Determine Your Legal Rights

The process of applying for, or responding to, a petition for protection can be a challenging experience for any individual to face.

We ease the burdens of this process by preparing our clients to appear before a judge to tell their side of the story. We help them ensure that the judge has all the information he or she needs to rule on whether to provide both a temporary and final order.

There are several important consequences of obtaining a protective order (or having one issued against you):

  • The person granted the protective order can be given temporary use and possession of a shared home.
  • If a couple has children, the parent granted a protective order may temporarily be awarded custody of the children and be entitled to support payments for their care.
  • The person against whom the order is issued will be prevented from going within a certain distance of the protected party, and that person may have to relinquish any firearms he or she owns.

Our team understands that these measures are never taken lightly. We are here to advocate on our clients’ behalf and always ensure that their rights are protected.
