Order of Protection-Rolling Meadows Criminal Defense Lawyer

Service to Schaumburg, Palatine, Arlington Heights, Hoffman Estates, and Buffalo Grove

An Order of Protection is issued by a judge to prevent domestic violence from occurring against any family member. Once an Order of Protection is signed, abusive partners, parents, spouses, and even ex-spouses who share the home, or who are related by blood or marriage, are not allowed to enter into the household for a set period of time.

At the Law Offices of Christopher M. Cosley, located in Rolling Meadows, Illinois, we help families to protect their rights and provide them with legal information on how to obtain an Order of Protection. We also provide criminal defense representation to those who are accused of domestic battery, assault and battery, misdemeanor, and felony offenses.

If you or someone you know would like to obtain an Order of Protection or defend against a restraining order that has been placed, feel free to call our experienced domestic violence defense attorney at (847) 394-3200 for a free initial consultation. Defense attorney Chris Cosley can help you file a petition to obtain an Order of Protection, or he can help you understand your rights if there has been a restraining order placed against you.

What Can an Order of Protection Do to Help You?

  • Order the abuser to stop calling you and to stop all contact with the children
  • Order the abuser to leave or move out of the home
  • Order the abuser to pay child support and health insurance
