Domestic Violence Laws in Michigan
The state of Michigan defines domestic violence as a repeated behavior in which one person uses physical, sexual, and emotional abuse to control another person in their household or family. You don’t have to be married to someone in order for them to be a victim of domestic violence. The law also protects children, stepparents, grandparents, or anyone living in the same household.
Personal Protection Orders
If there is violence or alleged violence in a household, you can seek a protection order without a court hearing. These types of orders are called ex parte orders, which are signed by a judge without having a hearing. However, your former spouse can use an ex parte personal protection order without a court hearing, to prevent you from having contact with your child.
Personal protection orders restrict a person from following, entering their home or workplace, assaulting, attacking or threatening. If you have a personal protection order against you, it is vital to contact an experienced attorney who can help you protect your relationship with your children as soon as possible.
