The safety of you and your family is more important than anything. When a dangerous situation arises you can feel vulnerable and uncertain of what actions to take. Fortunately, our family law team knows how to navigate these situations with professionalism while keeping in mind the emotional support you need.
If you are in immediate danger you may apply for a temporary protective order without the need of an attorney. If you wish to seek initial order instructions, forms, and resources can be found on the Maryland Court Website.
Once the temporary protective order has been applied for, you will have 7 days to attend court and request a final protective order during a domestic violence hearing. We urge you to have an attorney present during these hearings so that your case can be effectively presented.
At Frost Law, we take these situations very critically, which is why we ensure that we have all the facts of your case before devising a strategy. Feel protected both legally and emotionally with our family law team.
