If you have wrongfully been served with a protective order, then having a lawyer assist you will greatly increase your chances of having the order expunged or lifted.
What happens when someone violates a protective order?
Sometimes people that have been served with a VPO, or Victim's Protective Order, immediately contact the victim to explain their side of the story or try to have them remove the order. However, this contact is often in direct violation of the protective order. Violating the protective order can result in a criminal charge.
If you have been served with a protective order, the best thing to do is contact a protection order attorney to discuss the terms of the order. If you have been wrongfully served with a protective order, then your attorney will work with you to protect your rights and try to have the order lifted.
