This is a court order that protects you, your children, or your loved one from danger or harm by another person. Anyone can file an emergency order of protection, and it takes effect as soon as a judge approves it.
Typically, the person accused of inflicting harm must be notified about the emergency of protection hearing, but they aren’t required to show up. Luckily, the judge can grant immediate relief whether the accused is present or not.
If you’re thinking about filing for an emergency order of protection, consult with a family attorney first as they can advise you accordingly. Contact Granholm & Gynac today to speak with a family attorney.
