Chicago Orders Of Protection Lawyer
An order of protection is issued to act as a legal barrier between two people, one of whom feels threatened or intimidated by or has been harassed or abused by the other. While the purpose of this type of protection was meant to help individuals, unfortunately, orders of protection are also used to harm individuals. This is especially true in divorce, child custody and domestic battery issues. An order of protection is often used as a tool to give a person an unfair advantage in a child custody agreement or in the division of assets during a divorce.
At Lee & Fairman, LLP, we understand the power of orders of protection, and how the misuse of one can cause undue harm to individuals, as well as their relationships with family members.
Helping You Protect Your Rights
Our law firm has been helping individuals in Homewood, Illinois, and the surrounding Chicago area with difficult family law issues involving orders of protection for several years. We recognize the tactics that people use to gain control over legal disputes, and we know the importance of fighting for your rights when this happens to you.
Because an accusation of domestic violence and battery can have an immense, negative impact, not only on your good name but also in a divorce proceeding and other family law judgments, it is vital to contact a lawyer skilled in both Illinois family law and criminal law.
When you contact Lee & Fairman, LLP, our qualified legal team will:
- Examine your case and the circumstances that led the other party to obtain an order of protection against you
- Gather as many facts about your relationship with the other party and the reasons for obtaining the order of protection
- If applicable, ask a judge for permission to waive the order of protection against you by law enforcement or members of the community
Our goal is to compile evidence that will help create a solid defense for you and expose the other party’s true intentions, such as using an order of protection for tactical advantage over you in a legal dispute.
We will aggressively defend your rights and your reputation in order to put any unfounded allegations of domestic battery to rest and work toward getting the order of protection thrown out or dismissed.
