Whether to divorce your spouse can be a difficult decision, even for victims of domestic violence. In some situations, the decision to leave an abusive spouse can be stifled by threatening conduct. However, Massillamany Jeter & Carson may have a solution. Our Fishers family lawyers have experience obtaining protective orders against abusive spouses, ensuring a fair divorce proceeding free of intimidation.

You can consult one of our domestic violence attorneys free of charge by contacting us online, or by telephone at (317) 434-1490.

Leave the Hard Work to Our Legal Team

Victims of domestic violence, stalking, or a sexual offense can request the court to order a civil protection order against their perpetrator. Protective orders are filed in a civil court; which is different from a no-contact order that is filed in a criminal court. Protective orders do not charge the respondent (the alleged abuser) with a criminal offense.

Depending on the circumstances, a protective order can be issued ex parte (meaning without a hearing or after a hearing has been held). Once the Court issues a protective order, it will generally last for two (2) years. However, after the two (2) year period expires, the court may extend the protective order if needed.

A hearing on a protective order must be scheduled/held within thirty (30) days after filing it if the order establishes/modifies parenting time, requests/modifies child support, if it prohibits/restricts a parent’s time with their children or if it effectively removes a person from their place of residence.

We Can Be Your Voice

When a protective order is in place, communication between the victim and perpetrator is typically prohibited. Our family law attorneys at Massillamany Jeter & Carson can be used as an efficient tool to help coordinate parenting time, financial matters, or any other issue that may arise between two parties that have a protective order in place. Our staff is here to assist our clients through this difficult time in their lives and will work diligently to make this process as smooth and efficient as possible.
