These are the questions that you should be prepared to answer when you have your final protective order hearing. Please review each one carefully and have a plan for how your children will have visitation with the other parent.
If you do not appear at the hearing, your Temporary Order will expire.
If you are considering having an attorney with you at the hearing, start looking for one today.
Gather any evidence you think may help prove your case. This includes:
Will the visitation be supervised or unsupervised? If you fear violence, you can arrange for supervised visitation. You can also arrange a safe place to exchange the child(ren).
