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.
