If You Have a P.O for Domestic Violence, It Can Work Against You in Custody Litigation
Video Transcribed: How does a protective order affect my rights to my children? Hello, my name is Brian L. Jackson. I’m a Tulsa Father’s Rights attorney. And today we are going to talk about how a protective order might affect your rights to your children. Title 43 provides a set of mandatory considerations that judges must consider when dealing with issues of custody and visitation. Among those, is when there’s evidence of domestic violence.
The general rule is that there is a presumption against it being in the best interest of children to be placed in the custody of or to be allowed unsupervised visitation with, an individual who is found to have engaged in domestic violence.
If a protective order is entered against you for domestic violence, then it can work against you in later custody litigation. And it can result in you having your visitation restricted to supervised visitation or outright terminated if the court finds that you did indeed engage in domestic violence.
Similarly, protective orders issued for stalking and harassment can also be considered in custody and visitation litigation. And it can negatively impact your ability to see your kids or have custody of your kids.
If you find yourself subject to protective order proceedings or custody proceedings, it’s important to move quickly and seek out legal counsel. As a father, you would want to go to dads.law, and one of our attorneys can advise you as to your specifics, the facts of your specific circumstances.
