Protective Orders & Domestic Violence


Grapevine Domestic Violence Lawyers

Colleyville Protective Order Attorneys

Tempers flare and emotions run high in families. When those emotions spill over into verbal or physical abuse, our Grapevine domestic violence attorneys can educate you on your legal options and protections.

In a divorce, filing an application for an order of protection is a very serious matter. Since the matter is handled through family court, it is a civil matter rather than criminal. Even so, there are severe penalties for violating the order, and implications that could affect the outcome of a divorce proceeding. At the Law Offices of Thomas & Henderson, we strive to educate our clients on the ramifications in their decisions, and the process they will set in motion.

Protective or Restraining Orders Are a Serious Step

In some situations of domestic abuse or in the interest of child safety, the court might issue a protective order on an ex parte basis. This means that the order is delivered without notice to the accused party. This order of protection is considered temporary, and can remain in effect for up to 20 days.

We have experience representing clients who are seeking a protective order, defending themselves against a protective order or wishing to appeal the terms of an order of protection. Do not hesitate to contact a lawyer at our office with any questions or concerns.
