Few things can be as traumatic as experiencing the events that would lead someone to pursue a protective order or being served with a protective order that prohibits you from contacting and interacting with your family or loved one. A Loudoun protective order is one of the most valuable tools in the civil litigation system for protecting the safety of someone that has been the subject of domestic violence, domestic abuse, or sexual abuse. Unfortunately, protective orders are also one of the most misused and manipulated tools in the civil litigation system. Judges have very little time to examine the initial emergency or preliminary request for a protective order. The tendency is to err on the side of caution and grant the emergency or preliminary protective order.
