Family law matters such as divorce can become emotionally charged and orders of protection are a way to avoid potentially harmful situations. However, they can also be used improperly to sway decisions and outcomes related to custody and other familial matters. Because even allegations of domestic abuse are taken very seriously and custody issues are cause to look at every aspect of someone’s life, orders of protection that allege domestic violence can have devastating effects while fighting for parental rights.
