Protective Orders for Adults and Children
If you and/or your children are the victims of domestic violence in Utah, you can seek help with a protective order. These orders can cover a broad range of issues and protect you by ordering:
- No contact between you and the abuser
- Temporary sole possession of your home
- Temporary spousal support, child support or custody
In addition, you can request that the abuser not be allowed to possess any weapons. If the protective order is violated, we can enforce it by contacting the police and the court. Violation of protective orders can mean a jail sentence for the offender.
For more information, see domestic violence involving children.
Were You Accused of Domestic Violence?
It's not unusual for a spouse to make false allegations of domestic violence in order to kick the other partner out of the house or to gain the upper hand in a child custody dispute. If someone has obtained a temporary protective order against you, you should take the order very seriously. It could affect your rights, your reputation and even your employment. If you violate the order by contacting your spouse, you could be charged with a crime and jailed.
Our lawyers will take immediate steps to protect your rights and interests if you have been accused of domestic violence.
