Seattle Protection Order Attorneys
The first step for many domestic violence cases is filing an order of protection. This order is separate from any potential criminal charges that may be filed by the prosecuting attorney. If granted, this order can:
- Prohibit contact of any kind
- Remove the abuser from a shared residence
- Grant temporary custody of children and set visitation schedules
- Order the abuser into treatment/counseling
A temporary no-contact order can be granted if immediate intervention is needed. This order can prevent the accused from seeing his or her children and cause potential problems with child custody and visitation matters.
No matter which side of a protection order you are on, trust the Bellevue domestic violence attorneys at Gregory & Rooney to advocate on your behalf. As a former King County senior deputy prosecutor in the criminal division, Jeff Gregory will lead our team's efforts to navigate your case through the court system as skillfully and efficiently as possible.
