Protective Order Tampa

Protective Order Tampa

Many people may not have heard much about what a protective order is or what it does, but many people have heard of a restraining order is. With a protective order, Tampa residents should be aware that it is a document issued by a court to help protect an individual from harassment or abuse. It usually issued to someone to protect them from the actions of someone else, most commonly their partner in a romantic relationship or marriage. There are many actions and scenarios that can be avoided when someone files for a protective order and gets approve.

How Does Someone get a Protective Order?

In order for someone to be approved for a protective order, Tampa residents are going to have to file a complaint with their local court and show up to a hearing about it. During this hearing, all those involved will have the opportunity to share their side of the situation, and comment or defend their actions in a legal way. Some people do not ever show up to their hearing for a protective order, which significantly hurts their case and may have their protective order denied or be the subject of a restraining order depending on who it is that did not show up.

What Does a Protective Order Do?

In its most vague understanding, a protective order is designed to help protect someone from abuse and harassment. This can be done through many different ways, under many different conditions. With a protective order, Tampa residents involved would not be allowed to stay with you or your family, including at work or at school. It is not uncommon for a judge to issue a no contact rule for a protective order, which means they are not allowed to call, send messages or letters, or draft emails in order to get in touch with you.
