The Keffer Hirschauer LLP Guide to Protective Orders

Protective orders are meant to prevent violence, harassment, stalking, and other dangerous behaviors, but they can have serious implications for everyone involved. Also known as restraining orders and no-contact orders, protective orders require an individual to do more than stay away from an alleged victim.

Keffer Hirschauer LLP has published a protective order eBook called, “A Practical Guide to Protective Orders,” to help people facing protective orders understand how, exactly, protective orders work. The book not only dives into the different types of protective orders but also details how someone might file a protective order under the Indiana Civil Protection Order Act (ICPOA), the timeline for relief, and how a protective order can affect an individual in the future.

A Practical Guide to Protective Orders explores:

  • The situations in which protective orders arise
  • What restrictions protective orders impose
  • ICPOA and Indiana Code
  • How protective orders can intersect with criminal cases
  • What happens when protective orders are violated
  • How petitioners file protective orders
  • What happens after the petition for a protective order is filed
  • Court hearings
  • How long protective orders last
  • The Indiana Protective Order Registry
  • Sealing and expunging protective orders
  • And more

Our eBook is updated with the most recent rules and regulations, including updates about sealing records from July 1, 2019.

Driven, Experienced Legal Representation

If someone files a restraining order against you, you could be kicked out of your house, barred from your workplace, separated from your children and pets, and stripped of your legal right to bear arms. Protective orders can also appear on your background checks and be used against you in court.

At Keffer Hirschauer LLP, we are dedicated to upholding your rights and best interests. We are committed to excellence and can help you navigate protective orders and any other criminal matter you may be facing.
