Sometimes, in the midst of a heated custody battle or divorce settlement, a spouse may, out of intense emotions, seek an order of protection even though he or she is not in any real danger. Though a court must be convinced of such an order, it is sometimes not possible for the court to discern the truth. If such a situation has occurred or is occurring right now, it could prevent you from accessing your records and property or even seeing your children, greatly altering the outcome of your case and your right to a fair trial. You are strongly advised in this situation to follow the order of protection, with any or all of its specified conditions, and seek the counsel of an experienced attorney as soon as possible.
