Orders Of Protection

Because of the serious ramifications of domestic violence, allegations of abuse are taken seriously. Although authorities act with the intention of protecting victims from harm, their hasty actions can permanently affect the lives of wrongly accused individuals.

To put this in perspective for our community: Knox County issued more orders of protection than the rest of Tennessee combined.

At the law office of Montpelier, Cole, Della-Rodolfa & Ford, P.C., we understand the urgency of domestic violence criminal charges and the need to respond quickly to the corresponding orders of protection. Our team of attorneys has decades of experience, providing our clients with experience they can trust.

Understanding The Impact Of Orders Of Protection

Orders of protection are one of the most powerful legal tools. Once issued, they can affect child custody and visitation arrangements, spousal support obligations, other criminal charges, your right to bear arms and even your livelihood.

Many of the facilities in East Tennessee — including Y-12, Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) — require their employees to have federal clearances, and one of those clearances requires individuals be able to carry firearms. For an individual who needs a security clearance, receiving an order of protection could render him or her unable to work.
