Commonly referred to as “restraining orders,” Orders of Protection are, in actuality, a separate legal matter. Orders of Protection are typically applied for by a person wishing protection from another person (known as an Adult Order of Protection), or by a person wishing to protect their child from another person (known as a Child Order of Protection). If you are granted or are served with an Order of Protection, it is important that you consult with an attorney at The Lowry Law Firm as soon as possible.
