Orders of Protection


Harassment, physical violence, intimidation, and emotional abuse are significant issues affecting divorcing spouses and adults in relationships.  Our lawyers are experienced in domestic violence and orders of protection.  Our law firm helps people with the painful process of emergency and plenary orders of protection.


Sean Robertson and Robertson Legal Group, LLC concentrate in the areas of divorce, family law, and orders of protection law in the Chicago Suburbs.  If you need effective legal representation for an emergency order of protection, call us today.   An emergency order of protection order is for up to twenty-one (21) days.

Emergency court orders are ex-parte.  Ex-parte means that the alleged abuser did not have the opportunity to present their facts.  A plenary order of protection is a hearing, which allows Defendants and Plaintiffs to present their facts and evidence.  A plenary order of protection has serious consequences especially when children are involved.  An emergency order of protection’s goal is to protect a person until there is a hearing date or otherwise known as a plenary hearing.

A Plenary hearing is where both sides present evidence and a plenary order of protection is for up to two (2) years.  Plenary orders are final orders.  A Plenary hearing enables Plaintiffs and Defendants to present their evidence and have a Judge determine the outcome.
