Protection Orders in Nebraska

Protection or harassment orders (commonly known as restraining orders) are an important tool that allow victims of threats or harassment to have peace of mind.  They build a layer of legal protection between a victim and a perpetrator.  Unfortunately, like any legal tool, protection orders can also be misused.  Courts can issue protection orders simply on the word of an alleged victim.  A permanent protection order shows up on a criminal background check and can result in loss of the right to possess firearms under federal law. 18 U.S.C. 922.  Any person who has a temporary protection order placed against them will be notified of their right to a court hearing to dispute the allegations and/or the need for an order.  The notice to a hearing is usually in person but may also come by mail.  Persons wishing to dispute the order must request a hearing, attend the hearing, and provide evidence or argument as to why the court should deny the request.  Failure to request a hearing or appear will likely result in a permanent protection order.  Whether you are in need of a protection order or wish to dispute a protection order placed against you, the Law Office of J. Robert Black can help.
