The safety and well-being of your family is your priority, and it is ours, too. A restraining order or protection order (formally known as an injunction of protection), is a court order that protects victims and their children from the abuser. The order prevents the abuser from any contact, helping to ensure safety for the victims. We will help you file the appropriate paperwork and guide you through the process so we can protect your family.
