Personal Protection Orders

In addition to assisting clients with estate planning and probate matters, the law offices of Rodnick, Unger, Piraino & Ingber, PLLC also provide guidance and support when it comes to obtaining personal protection orders (PPOs). A personal protection order is a legal document issued by the court to protect individuals from threats, harassment, or violence. It serves as a means of safeguarding the well-being and security of individuals in potentially dangerous situations.

Our firm understands that personal safety is of utmost importance, and we are committed to helping our clients obtain the necessary legal protections. Whether you are facing domestic violence, stalking, or any other form of harassment or abuse, we can guide you through the process of obtaining a personal protection order.

The first step in obtaining a PPO is to file a petition with the appropriate court. Our experienced attorneys will assist you in preparing the necessary documents and guide you through the legal requirements. We will help you gather evidence, such as records of incidents, witness testimonies, or any other relevant information that supports your case.

Once the petition is filed, the court will review the evidence and consider the circumstances presented. If the court determines that you are in immediate danger or that there is a reasonable basis for granting the order, a temporary PPO may be issued. This temporary order provides immediate protection until a full hearing can be scheduled.

Subsequently, a hearing will be held to assess the merits of the case and determine whether a permanent PPO should be granted. Our attorneys will represent your interests during the hearing, presenting your case effectively and advocating for your safety and well-being. We understand the sensitive nature of these proceedings and will provide compassionate support throughout the entire process.

If a permanent PPO is granted, it will outline specific provisions tailored to your situation. These provisions may include restrictions on contact, maintaining a certain distance, or prohibiting specific actions by the respondent. Violation of the PPO can result in legal consequences for the respondent, emphasizing the importance of adhering to the terms of the order.

At Rodnick, Unger, Piraino & Ingber, PLLC, we prioritize the safety and security of our clients. Our attorneys have extensive experience in handling personal protection order cases and are dedicated to helping individuals seek legal protection from abusive or threatening situations. We will work diligently to ensure that your rights are protected and that you can live free from fear and harassment.

Please note that laws regarding personal protection orders may vary depending on the jurisdiction, and it is important to consult with an attorney to understand the specific requirements and processes applicable to your situation. Our firm is well-versed in the laws of our jurisdiction and can provide you with the necessary guidance and representation.
