Seek an Order of Protection in Chicago

Chicagoland Domestic Violence Attorneys

Domestic violence is a serious threat that no one should have to endure. A victim of domestic violence or abuse may require an order of protection to shield them from their abuser. The attorneys at the Law Offices of Jonathan Merel, P.C. are experienced in handling these difficult family law issues with skill and sensitivity. We routinely help victims of physical, emotional, and verbal abuse obtain relief in the form of an order of protection or civil restraining order, whether dealing with an isolated incident or a long history of abuse.

Contact us at (312) 487-2795 to discuss your situation with our Chicago domestic violence attorneys.

When to Seek Protection

Whether you have already suffered abuse or you have simply been threatened with abuse, you should seek protection immediately. Fearing for your safety is grounds for an order of protection.

Orders of protection and civil restraining orders are court orders that serve to protect the victims of abuse, neglect, intimidation, harassment, and/or domestic violence.

These protective orders may also be obtained for:

  • Child abuse
  • Elder abuse
  • Stalking
  • Abuse by a boyfriend/girlfriend or other family members

An order of protection will prevent the abuser from contacting you, approaching you, living with you, owning a gun, and contacting/visiting with children you have together, if applicable.

Defending the Accused

Our attorneys are also experienced at defending clients who have been wrongly accused and have an order of protection entered against them based upon the false claims. An order of protection or restraining order can limit your rights, prevent you from seeing your children, and have a serious impact on your daily life. It is crucial that you seek representation right away if there has been an order of protection entered against you.

Call us right away at (312) 487-2795 if you have a case involving domestic violence or an order of protection.
