In Texas, there are three types of orders of protection based on family violence: 1. Temporary ex parte protective order (only valid for a short period of time, but no notice is usually required to the other party); 2. Final (permanent) protective order (can be valid for years - but is only issued by the Court after notice and a hearing); and 3. Magistrate’s order of emergency protection (what most people call an emergency protective order).
The first two orders can be issued by the family Court, while the third is only issued by a criminal Court after an arrest. The attorneys at Dally & Webb, PLLC are highly skilled and trained to assess a situation to determine if the facts are sufficient to support the burden of proof the Court requires for the issuance of a Protective Order - and can guide you through the process of obtaining such protection if you are the victim of family violence.
