Denton Family Violence & Protective Order Attorneys


Protective Orders to Keep You & Your Family Safe

Deciding to apply for a protective order is a very personal and often complicated choice. Not all situations are black and white, especially when spouses and co-parents are involved. It is so important, however, that no matter how conflicted you may feel, you always put your physical safety ahead of someone else’s feelings. Family violence is never OK, no matter what.

If you fear that your safety or the safety of your child is in imminent danger, it is imperative that you do not take any chances. Contact the police. Once you are safe, we urge you to reach out to Goline & Roland Law Firm to help you navigate your way.

If you have suffered violence that does not pose an immediate threat to your safety, schedule a consultation with our Denton family lawyers. We will file with the court any necessary applications for protective orders, and we will represent you at any resulting hearings.
