Protective Orders & Peace Orders in Maryland and Virginia
Let our lawyers fight for you.
At Salvado Law, we are committed to ensuring that our clients are protected at all times. In the event that you feel as though your safety is in question, we can work toward obtaining a protective order on your behalf. There are two main types of orders in Maryland: protective orders and peace orders. While protective orders are often placed against family members, peace orders are put in place if you have a violent friend or neighbor that is compromising your safety. If you fit into either of these categories, it is vital that you reach out to our Rockville attorneys immediately.
The three levels of protective orders include the following:
- Interim order
- Temporary order
- Final order
During the interim order stage, the victim has the opportunity to seek help from the court, without the abuser’s knowledge. A temporary order is heard by the court and can turn into a final order if allowed by the courts. At this point, the alleged abuser may give a defense and a decision is made.
