What Does a Protective Order Do?

Our Denton, Collin, and Tarrant County domestic violence attorneys can help you navigate the legal processes required to file a protective order against your abuser so that you can feel safe at home again.

Also known as a "restraining order," a protective order in Texas can:

  • Force an abuser to leave your home (if you live together).
  • Restrict your abuser from coming within a specified distance of you, your place of work or school, and your home.
  • Restrict your abuser from coming within a specified distance of your children, their school, and their regular places of attendance.
  • Prohibit all contact from your abuser, including phone calls, emails, text messages, or notes.
  • Restrict your abuser from using a third-party to deliver messages or gifts on his or her behalf.

    “Handled My Divorce Quickly and with Ease”
    Mr. Pax did an excellent job with my divorce from the consult to final disposition. He made the process easier than I expected, since I was moving during the divorce process. He always had time to answer questions and set appropriate expectations. He and the staff worked around my sometimes odd schedule to get things done. I found everyone I interacted with to be friendly, professional and courteous. I would recommend them to anyone else needing a divorce attorney.

    “Divorce and Child Custody”
    I recently had the privilege of working with Shelby for my divorce and custody proceedings, and I am absolutely delighted with the exceptional level of support and expertise he provided. Throughout the entire process, Shelby demonstrated unwavering professionalism and dedication. Shelby listened attentively to my concerns, fears, and wishes, ensuring that I felt heard and understood. He provided comprehensive guidance, addressing all my questions and explaining complex legal matters in a way that was easy to comprehend. The success I achieved in securing international custody of my children stands as a testament to Shelby's expertise and unwavering diligence. His remarkable ability to achieve such outcomes in such a difficult case is a true testament to his capabilities. He also displayed genuine care and empathy throughout the entire process. His compassion and understanding made me feel reassured. I would wholeheartedly recommend Shelby to anyone in need of a family lawyer.

    “The best of the best!”
    I can't say enough good things about Shelby. He is thorough, bright, diligent, and all-around excellent at what he does. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable in his field, but he is also kind and sympathetic. He listened to my concerns and hopes for the future while also considering the facts and fighting hard with my best interest in mind. I appreciated that he even followed-up with me after everything was said and done just to make sure I was settling into my new normal. I will recommend Shelby to anyone who may find themselves in this tough position. He helped me every step of the way.

    “Tyler Livingston was such a pivotal part in helping me”
    First off I must say that this law firm saved me at least six months of a headache and so much money in the end. Tyler Livingston was such a pivotal part in helping me sell my deceased mother's property. We had to probate a will within a three week period and he put in the extra time and effort to ensure the success of our trial. The professionalism, the care and concern, not to mention the wanting to help someone with their family problems. If I ever have another family concern or worry I know the first person I am going to call. I cannot thank him enough for what he has done to help.

    “Smart, professional, strategic”
    Kelly was the second lawyer I had hired for my divorce matter after I had to terminate the first one. The difference was night and day - Kelly was always prepared, was willing to engage in strategy sessions, offered various unique approaches to problems, and was very easy to work with. I highly recommend her and Coker Legal in general.

    “Fast & Easy”
    My ex and I agreed on everything but we didn't know how to fill out all the paper work. Simple Texas Divorce .com was the perfect way to go. Quick and affordable. The staff was pleasant to work with and professional. They took something that was already painful and made the experience a little more pleasant. Highly recommend them.
