Orders of Protection
Orders of Protection and Domestic Violence
An order of protection (OOP) is always issued in cases of domestic violence to restrict the accused from having any further contact with the alleged victim until the charges are addressed in court. Even if no domestic violence charges have been made, if a spouse or parent is living in fear for their own or their children's safety they can request an order of protection be issued against their spouse or other party. Such an order will require that the named party immediately leave the home and have no further contact or communication with the petitioner until a court hearing. If you need more information about obtaining an order of protection issued call an experienced and caring Denver domestic violence attorney at the Lancaster Law Office, LLC.
Threatened or actual violence in the home is intolerable and punishable by law. If you have suffered from such threats or abuse you can do something about it. We can help you get immediate help and coordinate with social service agencies to get you the protection and help you need. If you file for an OOP it will give you up to 120 days of custody and care for your children. After two week, a formal hearing will be held to allow both parties to give testimony and evidence to allow the judge to decide if the order should become permanent.
