Protective Orders Attorney in Jacksonville
Understanding Restraining Orders
Protective orders prevent one person from legally contacting another in accordance with the law. Once a protective order is granted by the court, both parties are expected to follow the outlined rules and regulations. As a result, a violation can happen at any time, whether that is accidentally traveling down the wrong street, sending a text message, or even unknowingly attending the same event. If you are accused of a protective order violation, consult with a Jacksonville protective order attorney from The Trevor J. Avery Law Firm as soon as possible.
A protective order negatively affects your life. Not only are you prevented from going certain places, attending certain events, and reaching out to certain people, but you may be unable to access firearms. There are no exceptions to this penalty once it's been ordered, even for military members. The Jacksonville criminal defense lawyer at The Trevor J. Avery Law Firm can help protect your rights when you are being targeted by a protective order.
