About This Episode

In this episode of Men’s Divorce Podcast, we tackle a pressing issue in divorce proceedings – protective orders. Hosted by Scott Trout, CEO of Cordell & Cordell, and joined by Marie McGrath, Senior Litigation Attorney, the pair provide essential insights to help you understand the ins and outs of protective orders during divorce.

Protective orders can be a game-changer, dictating acceptable contact between parties, often involving children, based on minimal accusations. We walk you through the process of obtaining these orders, whether within the divorce case or separately in county court, depending on state laws. Discover the initial steps, where the requesting party presents their case before a judge, often leading to the issuance of a “temporary” protection order with minimal evidence.

But the implications go beyond that. We delve into the impact of these orders, shedding light on the varying levels of contact allowed, from complete isolation to reasonable communication. Additionally, we emphasize the legal repercussions of violating a protection order, whether temporary or permanent. Furthermore, we discuss how these orders can influence parenting time, potentially affecting the parent-child relationship, as courts may deem a party violent or unsafe, resulting in lasting consequences for parenting time and decision-making.

If you are facing divorce and not sure where to turn, contact a Cordell & Cordell divorce attorney.
