Katy Protective Orders Attorneys

Orders of Protection in Domestic Violence Cases

When a person is accused of domestic violence, that individual may end up having a protective order filed against him or her. This is a court order that is meant to protect the alleged victim from further acts of domestic violence or harassment. (Domestic violence, also called “family violence,” is an act of physical harm or a serious threat of physical harm against a family member, a household member or a current or former significant other.) In the state of Texas, a protective order for family violence will prohibit the alleged offender from the following actions (according to Texas Family Code §85.022):

  • Communicating with the victim or any member of the victim’s family or household in a harassing manner, or at all (either directly or indirectly)
  • Going to or near the victim’s residence, place of work other places where the individual is known to frequent
  • Committing further acts of domestic violence
  • Stalking the victim or committing other actions that would be seen as harassment
  • Harming or threatening the safety of the victim’s pet or assistance animal
  • Possessing a firearm

With a protective order, the court may also require the alleged offender to complete a battering intervention and prevention program.
