Domestic violence is defined as any act, attempted act, or threatened act of violence or harassment against an individual with whom the offender has a close relationship.

  • Protective orders issued against you
  • At least 36 hours of domestic violence education and treatment
  • Incarceration
  • Restitution to the victim

The Consequences of a Protective Order

A protective order—sometimes called a "restraining order"—can be issued against the accused offender even before they are convicted for domestic violence. The order can be temporary, permanent, or based on an emergency situation, but all have serious consequences, often impacting the ones basic freedoms.

Based on the details of the offense, a protective order can:

  • Order the abuser to stop contacting the victims
  • Order the abuser to move out of their home
  • Remove all child custody rights from the abuser
  • Require the abuser to surrender their right to bear firearms
  • Order the abuser to continue making child support or alimony payments

Dealing with such harsh restrictions can be devastating, particularly when your relationship with your loved ones is on the line. Attorney Chris Cessna wants to ensure that you are given the right to a fair trial and can prepare the strong case you need in a court of law.
