Lebanon Order of Protection Attorneys
Safeguarding Your Rights & Reputation
An order of protection is a civil petition that requests a restraining order be issued because a person, commonly a family member or significant other, is alleged to have assaulted, stalked, or harassed them.
Though an order of protection is technically civil, it has some quasi-criminal aspects in that it limits your liberties and constitutional rights. If an order of protection is granted against you, you are prohibited from contacting that person, going around that person, possessing a firearm, among other restrictions for one year.
It is during this one year that things can avalanche into additional issues for you. An order of protection is commonly taken out contemporaneously with a domestic assault warrant or the filing of a divorce. If you are found to be in violation of an order of protection, it may be extended up to five (5) years, being charged with T.C.A 39-13-113, and jail time.
