When emergency protection orders are needed, Centennial Family Law Attorney Bruce H. Rabun is ready to help people get these orders in place as soon as possible.

When emergency protection orders are requested to protect a person or child in a volatile, dangerous home, these court orders can specifically mandate that the alleged abuser:

  • Stops contacting the victim(s) in any way
  • Leave the shared home and stay away from it while the order is in effect
  • Relinquish his or her rights to custody and/or visitation of the child involved in the case.

Emergency protection orders will typically stay in place for a few days, during which time some measures may need to be taken to obtain more permanent protection orders from the court.
