It’s hard to manage the fallout when a protection order shows up in the mail or at the door. A lot of emotions may surface, as these orders are often filed by people who were very close to us in life. But these are serious legal documents and they should be taken seriously.
Although there are legal ways to challenge a protection order or figure out how to live with it, there are no legal ways to directly challenge the person who filed it. This is because these orders generally prevent contact in person or over any media when an order is in effect.
