You OF COURSE need your lawyer; sorry to shout; but you hired an attorney to represent you; an order of protection is a legal proceeding. Your attorney is the one you need to discuss this with and listen to his/her advice. If you are concerned about that advice, you should tell your attorney your concerns. If you are still concerned you should obtain a second opinion in a confidential interview with another attorney.
This comment does not create an attorney-client relationship. The law and its application by the courts is constantly evolving and changing. This discussion is not to be taken as a definitive guide, and should not be relied upon to determine all fact situations. Each set of facts must be examined separately with the current case and statutory law analyzed and applied accordingly.Ask a similar question
I recommend you speak with your lawyer. If you don't feel comfortable consulting your current attorney (financially or other reason), you should feel free to seek a second opinion.Ask a similar question
