Seeing Your Children While an Emergency Protective Order Is in Place

Domestic assault charges and protective orders often go hand-in-hand. If you have children and are accused of assaulting their other parent, their names may be included in an emergency protective order. If you wish to see the children while the emergency protective order is in place, you will need your attorney to present evidence that you are not a threat to them. Alternatively, you can ask a family member to establish third-party visitation or make arrangements to see the children at a supervised visitation center.
