Protective Orders

Every day, Oklahoma protective order courts are filled with individuals not represented by attorneys, unaware that statements made in the protective order case could lead to criminal charges, job loss, or the loss of custody of their children. Protective orders are serious matters involving allegations that can have life-changing consequences. Federal law prohibits protective order defendants from possessing a firearm or ammunition. Protective order judges have no obligation to advise each defendant of all the potential consequences of a permanent protective order.

Oklahoma law limits the reasons for which a person may seek a protective order. The person seeking relief must allege domestic abuse, stalking, harassment, or rape. There are other requirements for those who seek a protective order on the basis of domestic abuse or harassment. Every trial lawyer at the Law Office of Aaron D. Bundy, PLC, has extensive courtroom trial experience in protective order cases. Our trial lawyers have successfully obtained dismissal of protective orders when the person seeking the protective order did not meet or fulfill all the legal requirements for a protective order. Our attorneys have persuaded judges to convert protective orders into less severe civil restraining orders. Attorneys Amy Page and Aaron Bundy have successfully defended protective orders at trial, showing the judge through cross-examination of hostile witnesses that a protective order was not necessary.
