Your Voice In Life's Uncertain Times

Will a protection order hurt your future?

| May 3, 2017 | Family Law |

In Wisconsin, there are both protection and restraining orders. They are designed to protect abuse victims from their abusers, but they can also be misused by people who just want an edge when it comes to child custody or other divorce matters. If you have been facing untrue accusations and have been the subject of a restraining order, Mayer Law Office, LLC., will provide you with all the reasons you need to fight back against it.

First of all, if a protection order is finalized, it will go on your record. What does this mean for you? It means that anyone who can or must see your record will see that you’ve had a restraining order filed against you. In extreme cases, this can actually cause you to lose your job. You may also face ridicule and discrimination solely because of this black spot on your record, even if it’s otherwise clean.

People who have protection orders filed against them usually aren’t allowed to own ammunition or firearms, as well. You may even be forced to find another place to live, either because the landowners refuse to renew your lease or because you become stigmatized within your neighborhood.
