Protective Orders

Protective Orders are hand delivered to the defendant by the Nolan County Sheriff's Office and play a unique role in helping stop family violence within the Nolan County community and communities across Texas. Protective Orders serve as a basic legal remedy for victims of family violence escaping abuse and increase victim safety.

A protective order…

  1. Orders a person not to commit any more family violence.
  2. Orders a person not to come within a certain distance of where the victim lives and works and of the victim's children, their home, school, day care or baby sitter.
  3. Orders a person not to communicate with the victim indirectly in any way that is harassing or threatening.
  4. Prevents a person from harassing, annoying, alarming, abusing, tormenting or embarrassing the victim or a member of the victim's family or household.
  5. If you are still living together, it requires the defendant to move out.

After gathering all facts and information regarding your case, you will be required to complete a simple application and provide information on yourself and the person you are making the complaint against (the defendant). If you cannot complete the application, a deputy will be glad to assist you.
