Orders of Protection in Orland Park, Illinois

If you or your family are the victims of physical violence, threats, or stalking by a spouse (or significant other or family member), you can get a protective court order. Restraining orders are called "orders of protection" in Illinois and place legal restrains on a proposed abuser. Different types of protection orders are also available in Illinois, such as:

  • Emergency Order – These protective orders can be obtained instantaneously on a temporary basis by the court. The suspect does not have to be present for an emergency order to be dispensed. Emergency orders typically expire in 14-21 days. In order for the protective order to be prolonged, the victim must attend a court hearing.
  • Interim Order – When a hearing cannot be scheduled before the expiration of an emergency order, an interim order is used to extend the order of protection. For an interim order to be issued, the accused abuser must have either appeared before a judge or been notified of the upcoming hearing.
  • Plenary Order – After a hearing in which both sides have the chance to present their evidence, a plenary order can be issued if the victim's case is verified. These orders can last for up to two years in Illinois.

Our firm also represents those who are falsely accused of domestic violence. Our attorneys investigate the alleged situation and defend our clients who have been falsely named in an order of protection.
