ORDERS OF PROTECTION     630-468-2505

It is unfortunate, but not uncommon, for orders of protection to be called on in divorce, or child custody and visitation cases. Unfortunately, family issues can turn into a need for legal action if you or your children are being abused by a spouse, ex-spouse or another party.

Physical, mental or emotional abuse against a family member or someone in your household is a crime under the Illinois Domestic Violence Act. An order of protection can be filed by the abused to legally forbid the abuser from further abuse.
