Tyler Domestic Violence Attorneys
East Texas Protective Order Attorneys
If you have been subjected to violence as part of your personal life or fear that violence is about to become a part of your domestic situation, there are steps that you can take to protect yourself. Protective Orders are available, either by a Justice of the Peace or through the family law courts. Whichever is right for you depends on your facts, but both may order the aggressor to have no contact with you or the children.
Spousal abuse, spousal battery and other forms of domestic violence can occur in any home, in any circumstance. If you are concerned for your safety or the safety of your children, do not hesitate to secure the protection of the court through a Protective Order.
If violence has already occurred, contact the police immediately.

Are You Facing Domestic Violence? You Are Not Alone.
Depending on the circumstances of your particular situation, the courts have a variety of no contact orders, including ex parte protective orders, temporary restraining orders and magistrate’s emergency protective orders. The duration of these orders varies, but the main effect is the same — to keep your aggressor from coming into contact with you.
The limits on contact include contact via any means, including:
- In person
- Messages conveyed through a third party
