Domestic Violence Orders in Texas

The law offers victims of domestic violence or assault three avenues: emergency orders, protective orders, and restraining orders.

Emergency & Temporary Orders

Emergency orders can be imposed by a family law judge. Temporary restraining orders, or ex-parte orders, are common in divorce actions. They offer immediate protection against an abuser. They also maintain the status quo, preventing the other party from emptying bank accounts, purchasing or selling assets, or running up credit card bills.

Permanent Protective Orders

A permanent protective order prevents future assaults, making it illegal for the abuser to be near the other party. Violations of this order can be criminal behavior, with the violator subject to arrest. To obtain a permanent protective order, victims must attend a hearing at which the abuser is present. These orders are awarded for up to two years and can be renewed.

Domestic Violence Can Affect the Outcome of a Divorce

At the Law Offices of Frank E. Mann, P.C., we complete all necessary paperwork and attend hearings for clients who need protection from an abuser. We also represent people who are subject to restraining orders and injunctions or have been charged with violating such orders.

Having a temporary or permanent protective order in place can influence the courts’ final determination in divorce or child support actions, increasing or decreasing the amount of child support or adding to the complexity of visitation plans.
