Protection Orders Archives

How can a protective order affect a divorce?

If you are going through a divorce and you have been a victim of domestic violence, it is important that you take action to protect yourself and your children. The best course of action if you want to seek relief from harassment or abuse from your divorcing spouse is to seek an order of protection, otherwise known as a restraining order.

Understanding the ramifications of protection orders

Many family law concerns in Colorado are difficult, but these cases can be exponentially more complicated when orders of protection need to be applied. An order of protection, sometimes referred to as a restraining order, is a legal document that is signed by a judge to keep parties apart on a temporary or permanent basis. In family law cases, these documents may be necessary if acts of violence, abuse, neglect or other harmful behavior are being carried out.
