“I don’t want to have any contact with her anyway. What’s the big deal?”
Many people assume that, just because the relationship is over, there is no harm in agreeing to a protective order. Months later they realize that things they said in the protective order agreement are being used against them in a criminal case. Or in a divorce case. Or to modify child custody.
And that’s only the beginning.
When you agree to a protective order, a copy is sent to all local law enforcement agencies, as well as your children’s school or day care center. Many people get embarrassed – and frustrated - when their child’s school gets a copy of the protective order and the teachers start to look at them differently, especially when the only reason they agreed to the order is because they were trying to make things easier for everyone.
There are many situations in which a protective order is necessary. There are far more instances in which it is not. We can help.
