Temporary Protective Orders in Nevada
If you live in southern Nevada—Las Vegas, Henderson, Boulder City, or Mesquite—and you or anyone you know needs help with a Temporary Protective Order in your personal or professional life, you need to reach out for legal assistance as soon as possible.
You need Douglas Crawford Law.
You may need a Temporary Protective Order for many reasons. The Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) cover several areas of law from which we can mount your case: from Domestic Violence (NRS 33.017) to issues in the Workplace (33.280). The State of Nevada feels its citizens deserve protection from all forms of harassment in all spheres of their lives, most especially if that harassment is occurring at work.
Victims of Domestic Violence who seek to escape their situation have options available to them across southern Nevada. Domestic Violence is not only defined as harm or injury to yourself by another person: it can also be carrying a concealed weapon without a permit, threats, stalking, destruction of your property, even injury to your pets. If you are trying to flee such a situation, my office can help get you on the path to your new life, even if you have children. Unfortunately, many survivors of abuse stay in bad situations either hoping things will get better or because they feel they have no options of escaping their situation. You do have options, and one of them is a Temporary Protective Order. Depending upon the circumstances, we could turn that into an Extended Order for further protection. I have much experience in this realm of law and can help you to get the process of moving your life away from abuse and toward a peaceful future for yourself and your family.
The State of Nevada takes a very dim view of issues in the workplace, especially harassment. The NRS provide us with the baseline to help us build a case to protect you from problems at work. Harassment in the workplace can come from multiple areas, not only physical or body abuse but also damage to any property of yours or physical or mental threats that might make you fear for your personal safety and well-being. You may have been putting up with a bad situation for too long. If you’re being generous and don’t someone to lose their job even though they are creating a difficult situation at work, a Temporary Protective Order may be the way to go to protect you in the interim while you seek out solutions with your employer. If the situation is more grave than that, a Temporary Protective Order can still give you safety while your case proceeds.
In my more than 30 years’ experience with protective orders and harassment situations, I have seen most everything people can do to one another. I am very hard to surprise. That will work to your advantage as I use that experience to create the safest possible situation for you whether in your personal or professional life.
