When served with paperwork for an order of protection, or even if he is trying to obtain an order of protection for himself, it may be a daunting prospect to an Omaha man to think about having to go to a court for hearing.
An Omaha man who gets served with a protection order should resist every temptation to take the matter lightly. It sometimes seem to them that a protection order can be kept private so long as it is followed. In fact, though, an entry of a protective order against him is an official action of a court that is kept as a matter of public record.
A previous post talked about how men in Omaha can face serious consequences if they have a protection order entered against them. These consequences can include losing the right to possess a firearm, being evicted from one's home and other penalties beyond just being ordered to stay away from the alleged victim.
As this blog has discussed before, if a man in Omaha receives a domestic abuse protection order, he should consider taking appropriate legal action to defend himself. In addition to limiting his movement and his ability to contact his spouse or significant other, even if she has custody of his children, many of his other rights may also be affected.
As this blog has discussed on previous occasions, victims of physical abuse have the option of obtaining a protection order from a court in Nebraska that can help protect both them and their children. This is of course important when abuse has actually occurred.
To continue our discussion of the different types of protection orders available in Nebraska, a protection order for domestic abuse may well be the type of protection order that is most widely known to Omaha residents.
A previous post on this blog talked about harassment protection orders in Nebraska and what Omaha men can do if they are served with such an order. As mentioned in that previous post, a harassment protection order is just one of the three types of protection orders a Douglas County court may issue, either with, or, under certain circumstances, even without notice.
Previous posts on this blog have overviewed the different types of protection orders residents of Nebraska can obtain from their local courts, including the courts here in Omaha and the rest of Douglas County.
A previous post on this blog talked about how dads who wind up getting accused of domestic violence during a family law dispute, even if no criminal charges ever get filed have a lot to lose.
Although Nebraska law generally presumes that a dad should have liberal parenting time and a considerable say in how his child is raised, even when he does not care for the child most of the time, there are exceptions to this rule.
