Protective Orders

Protective Orders

When should you ask for a protective order?

In Virginia, you have the right to ask for a protective order when you have been the victim of an "act involving violence, force, or threat that results in bodily injury or places one in reasonable apprehension of death, sexual assault, or bodily injury."

The appropriate court in Virginia will issue an order to protect your health and safety or any of your family or household member. Violating a protective order is a criminal offense in Virginia.

No matter the circumstances, you have the right to protect yourself, and you have options available to you.

If you would like to discuss your situation in a confidential setting, please call or email to schedule a consultation.
