Protective Order Defense in Montgomery County and Prince George’s County
In Maryland, a commissioner, magistrate, or judge can issue a protective order. The primary goal of any Maryland protective order is to administer a legal means of stopping the abuse and provide protection for the victim by limiting contact with the alleged abuser. Frequently, allegations of domestic violence in Maryland are made in contested divorce and child custody proceedings as an attempt to get the court make determinations as to custody and access to the home.
