Illinois Orders of Protection Attorneys
Allegations of domestic violence can result in a restraining order which would prohibit any contact between the accuser and the accused. An emergency order of protection is normally valid for 14-21 days. The emergency order of protection may be extended as a plenary order of protection (full) for up to two years following a hearing. In the event that an order of protection is not contested, the court will likely grant a plenary order of protection that can be found on a criminal background check. Even though a plenary order of protection is a civil order, and not a criminal order, it can still have serious ramifications, and can effect your ability to get a job or housing, etc.
