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
- Orders a person not to commit any more family violence.
- 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.
- Orders a person not to communicate with the victim
indirectly in any way that is harassing or threatening.
- Prevents a person from harassing, annoying, alarming,
abusing, tormenting or embarrassing the victim or
a member of the victim's family or household.
- 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.
