Protective Orders for Domestic Violence in Indianapolis

Any person who could be subject to threats of violence should get the protection that the law provides under a protective order. At Keffer Barnhart LLP, we can take action for you in getting this order in place, or in getting an existing protection order lifted. Those who are accused of domestic violence are often subject to an order of protection, also called a restraining order.

Under this court order, the named person is restricted from making any contact, whether in person, over the phone, in texts, messages, or in being present in places in which the alleged victim frequents (such as work, school etc.). The order also restricts the named person to be within a certain number of feet of the other person should they happen to be present in the same location. This order is in place to protect a victim of domestic violence and allows for an immediate arrest in a violation.

There are cases in which a protection order is issued without basis. Some divorce cases are so emotionally charged that there can be false accusations made about the conduct of one of the parties regarding threats, acts of domestic violence, and similar situations. When an accusation is made, the court has little choice other than issuing the order, as it is unknown whether the facts are true or false, and in an effort to protect victims, the safe road is taken.

However, if you are facing a protective order and are not a danger and this is a false accusation, it can be disconcerting and very worrisome. You will be restricted from entering your own home, accessing your personal possessions easily, or seeing your children. It can be an urgent matter to get the order lifted, and we are prepared to assist you.
