Get Immediate Assistance For Family Violence And Neglect

Family violence should never be tolerated. It is important to contact legal assistance right away if you fear for your or your child's safety at home. You can receive immediate protection through an emergency temporary restraining order in Sherman.

An emergency temporary restraining order will enforce legal conditions on an alleged violent partner. The order may require them to stay out of the home and away from you and your children for a period of 14 days or until further order of the court. The conditions will likely prohibit any contact with you for the duration of the order. This will give you time to breathe and think about your next steps.

At Jeremy J. Poet Law Firm, PLLC, we have extensive experience assisting individuals and parents with petitions for temporary restraining orders in cases of family abuse. We often assist clients with plans for divorce and child custody orders alongside restraining orders.

An emergency temporary restraining order should not be mistaken for a protective order. A protective order is longer lasting (up to two years). These orders are taken seriously by the court, and you will need an experienced lawyer as your advocate in the hearing. As a skilled criminal defense and family law attorney, Jeremy J. Poet understands how to build a strong case to win a protective order.
