In this companion blogpost, our Illinois domestic abuse lawyers take a closer look at how Illinois laws define "abuse" for an Order of Protection.
Orders of Protection are designed to protect the person submitting it or another person from abuse at the hands of another person, often a family member. "Abuse" and "family or household member" are broadly interpreted by Illinois courts; the full article on domestic abuse protection by our Illinois domestic abuse lawyers tries to help you understand how these terms can be used to protect you or your loved ones.
In this article, our Illinois domestic violence attorneys explain how to get an Order of Protection in Illinois.
After defining what an Order of Protection is, we examine at how Illinois courts administer Orders of Protection to try and protect the abused. We also explain emergency and plenary orders, the differences between them, and how to obtain them from Illinois courts.
