The intended effect of such an order is to keep you safe from further danger. A protective order may also be extended to your children, should you have any. A protective order may be used to bar the offender from contacting you directly and through third parties. It may also preclude the offender from coming to your home, your workplace, school, or anywhere else you or your children attend on a regular basis. Further, a parent charged with domestic violence could lose his or her custody and visitation rights.
