Domestic Violence Restraining Order / Protective Orders

If you have been the victim of domestic violence, learn about your options when it comes to obtaining a temporary restraining order/protective order. This order can last for as long as 18 months. A New Orleans family lawyer at our firm can help you request this order.

What Does a Protective Order Do?

A restraining order can effectively protect you by preventing the offender from:

  • Contacting you directly
  • Contacting you through third parties
  • Coming to your home, place of work, school, or any other places you visit regularly
  • Having child custody/visitation rights
