Restraining Orders and Harassment Protection Orders

If you have been abused, harassed, stalked or threatened in any way, there are protections available. At Davis Law Group, we know all of the options available. Our lawyers will take the necessary steps to keep you and your family safe from harm.

Restraining Orders

A restraining order (RO), also known as an abuse prevention order or protective order, is most commonly used in family law situations involving domestic violence. The abuse may be between a husband and wife going through a divorce. However, this protection is also available in situations involving violence between boyfriends and girlfriends and others.

A restraining order will require that the abusive party remain a safe distance from you and refrain from any contact via phone, text message or email. If the abusive party lives with you, the restraining order will force him or her out of the home. Any violations of the restraining order will result in serious penalties, and we will make certain they are enforced.

If you have been the victim of domestic abuse, our Quincy restraining order attorneys will move quickly to help you get the protection you need.

Harassment Prevention Orders

A harassment prevention order (HPO), sometimes referred to as a harassment protection order, is a new kind of restraining order. An HPO provides protection to those who have been the targets of harassment by someone who is not a family member or a member of the same household. Whether you have been harassed by a neighbor, an acquaintance or a complete stranger, an HPO can benefit you. We will help you get an HPO as quickly as possible.
