Colorado Orders of Protection | Protective Order Attorney

Protective Orders are a common occurrence in family law cases. A party may file for a Temporary Civil Protection Order (TPO) in either civil or domestic court. Once the TPO is granted, a permanent protection order hearing will be set and the protected party must have the restrained party served with the TPO.

At a permanent protection order hearing, the protected party must prove to the court that they are in imminent danger to their life or health because of the restrained party’s actions or behaviors. They must also prove that these actions or behaviors will not stop unless the restrained party has a protection order entered against them.

Whether you are seeking a protection order or defending yourself against one, permanent protections orders have lasting implications, even criminal implications, and you may not want to go to court alone. Contact us today to speak to an attorney about your situation.
