Orders of Protection in Domestic Violence Cases

As a Washington, DC divorce law firm that handles a wide range of family law issues, Antonoplos & Associates provides assistance with restraining orders and orders of protection (OOP). If you or your children have been threatened or harmed, you need to take quick legal action to remove the abusive individual from your life and vicinity. No matter the scenario, one of the most important things to do when filing restraining orders is to do so as quickly as possible. This not only protects yourself and your child, however, it also shows the court system that you are concerned for your safety and that a restraining order is necessary.

On the other end of the spectrum, if you are a spouse, partner, or parent who has been unfairly accused and you have a restraining order or OOP filed against you, we can help you contest the order in court. Even if you did not partake in the actions that the order says you did, ensure that you do not go near the party who filed the order as you can go to jail for doing so. Antonoplos & Associates family law and domestic law attorneys have extensive experience handling domestic violence-related issues and service clients in Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia.

In domestic violence cases, restraining orders or OOPs may be filed against individuals such as:

  • A current spouse / partner
  • A former spouse / partner
  • A family member
  • A household member
