Orders For Protection In Burnsville
Seek Help In Dakota County, South Metro And Surrounding Areas
Are you in fear for your safety or the safety of your child? At Meinerts Law Office, P.A., attorney Merlyn Meinerts takes domestic violence in any and all forms very seriously. He has seen domestic violence become more and more prevalent, especially in divorce and family-related cases. Many spouses or parents use forms of domestic violence to gain control over a situation. There are also circumstances when false allegations of domestic violence are made in an effort to gain advantage in an upcoming divorce.
Mr. Meinerts can help you file for an Order For Protection (“OFP”) to keep yourself and your family safe from violence. He can also be of assistance to those who are served with an OFP but deny the existence of domestic abuse in the relationship.
How To Get An Order For Protection In Minnesota
If you do not feel that you are safe from your spouse, romantic partner, or another party with whom you share a household and want to seek an Order For Protection, the first step is to speak with a lawyer. Mr. Meinerts can help you contact the court and seek an ex parte order for protection.
An order of protection may be appropriate if you have been a victim of physical abuse or the threat of physical abuse.
How Does An Order For Protection Work?
If a permanent order of protection is granted as a result of an evidentiary hearing, this means that the accused party must stay away from you. This includes your home, your work, and if you share children together, your children in some cases.
