Illinois Order of Protection: Victim and Accused Overview

Domestic abuse, physical violence and the threat of physical violence are never acceptable and the attorneys at Edward Johnson and Associates P.C. take these cases very seriously. We’re determined to take every possible precaution to protect our clients and our clients children in the event of any domestic abuse, including hitting your spouse or significant other, making verbal threats and even stalking incidents. Depending on the circumstances, obtaining a restraining order or order of protection may be necessary.

Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for one party to request an order for strategic reasons. This is because the order often includes a requirement for the restrained party to stay out of the home, have no parenting time, refrain from all phone and e-mail contact, etc. In effect, the order becomes a de facto sole custody order. It is usually up to the restrained party to file a motion to terminate the order and then a hearing is held.
