The State of Utah provides individuals who are victims of domestic violence a remedy to protect themselves—a protective order. If the court finds from a petition that domestic violence or abuse has occurred it may issue a temporary protective order and grant you a hearing on the matter within about 20 days. The family law attorneys at Anderson & Rogers are here to assist you with any question that you may have about obtaining a protective order.
Have you been served with a temporary protective order? If so, it is imperative that you act quickly! Failure to do so may result in the loss of certain rights, including but not limited to custody of your minor children, possession and use of your residence, and the right to own and/or possess a firearm. At Anderson & Rogers, our family law attorneys are here to assist you with any question that you may have about defending a temporary protective order.
