Unfortunately, people often go through very difficult circumstances which require that they seek protection through the court system. In these situations, depending on your relationship with the person you are seeking protection from, you either need a protective order or peace order.
As the Petitioner, the burden of proof is on you to demonstrate to the Court that you are entitled to relief; if you fail to meet that burden, the Court will not grant you the protection that you are seeking. Therefore, it is extremely important that you have effective legal counsel to present your story and evidence to the Court demonstrating your need for protection. Whether you are pursuing or defending against a petition for a protective or peace order, the Greenberg Legal Group can help you through this process and provide you with the representation you need.
