The Protection Available Under The Law

Alabama laws allow victims of domestic abuse to seek protection through a specific type of legal order. A protective order can give you the legal right to call the police if the other party comes near you or violates the terms of the order. Some of the specific provisions you can seek through your protective order include:

  • Temporary custody of the children
  • Prohibiting the abuser from contacting you in any way
  • Requiring the abuser to move out of your home
  • Preventing the abuser from coming near your place of work or your kids' school

Through your protective order or filing a lawsuit, we may also be able to help you seek terms that will require the abuser to compensate you for your legal fees. No matter the details of your individual situation, we are committed to helping you secure terms that keep you from additional physical harm and grant you peace of mind.
