Have you or your children been the victims of domestic violence in Las Vegas or Clark County? Are you convinced that a protective order is the only immediate way to ensure your safety?
Shawn R. Huggins at Huggins Law Office has helped victims of domestic violence obtain protective orders for the last 15 years. A protective order forbids a person from contacting you while forbidding them to come within a certain distance of you. If a restraining order is necessary, the person who is threatening you must also relinquish any firearms they own. Restraining orders and protective orders are subject to interstate enforcement under the federal Violence Against Women Act. Our law firm is serious when it comes to serious family law problems that jeopardize your health and well-being.
Protective Orders and Restraining Orders - Filing Criminal Charges in Las Vegas Valley
Attorney Huggins can discuss with you the option of filing criminal charges against your current or former spouse, boyfriend, girlfriend, family friend or acquaintance. If you or your children have suffered stalking, harassment, terroristic threats or hands-on abuse, inform authorities immediately.
Domestic violence and protective orders such as a temporary protective order (TPO) can adversely affect a spouse's custody and visitation privileges. Even though it is important that both parents remained involved in their children's lives, when abuse or violence occurs, those privileges may need to be curtailed. We will accompany you to any hearing where these factors are discussed, and aggressively represent your rights.

Serious Representation for Your Serious Family Law Problems
A protective order gives you a refuge, a barrier around your home and office that should not be compromised. If the person whom it has been filed against seeks to breach that safe haven, he or she will have to answer to the police.
Courts issue these protective orders to prevent future threatening behavior or communications, or physical contact or attacks. Any disturbance of the peace by the offender, in proximity to you, is unlawful and can result in arrest.
The protective area around you can extend from a distance of 100 to 500 feet. Children and any other relatives living with you are protected as well.
Your personal safety, and that of your defenseless children, is important to us. At Huggins Law Office, we stand prepared to help obtain protective orders when problems in your home erupt into violence.
