State Bar of Texas

Family Violence

If you are threatened or hurt by your spouse or the parent of your child, you can ask for a restraining order. Texas restraining orders can get the abuser kicked out of the house. We can get this without a hearing and quickly.

If there has been family violence, it really sets the tone for the rest of the case, especially in a child custody case. An abuser can have their custody rights taken if they abuse any family member.

Another type of restrainer order is called a protective order. This restraining order has a little more teeth. If you get a protective order against someone, that person can get arrested for going near you. By state law, they cannot possession a firearm or ammunition, even if they have a license to carry. A restraining order is enforced by going back to court. A protective order is enforceable by law enforcement. Right then.
