Contact a Fathers Rights Attorney when Assistance Needed
This is another one and a little bit of an extension to my last video, which was about protective orders and how the filing process has been modified in order to reduce people downtown in that family safety center.
Now, it’s not entirely cutting out that family safety center, because if an emergency is granted, when the police officer calls in, if you watched my last video, you’ll remember that now it’s changed and a police officer is assisting in presenting the emergency to the judge.
Well, if the judge is to give them that emergency, they’ll be given a day in approximately 30 or so days. And they’re to show up at the family safety center.
This is similar to setting an emergency and then having a court date, which would be called a show cause date, which is typical. In this case, it’s just requiring the victim to show up on that 30 day period.
If the victim is able to show up the family safety center on those 30 days, then it won’t be dismissed just on that basis.
However, if the victim will be given a date in approximately 30 days and no, sorry. The victim must appear on the 30 days of effectively.
If the victim doesn’t appear on that date at approximately 30 days, the emergency will be dismissed. So if you file a protective order and you’re given a day, make sure you go to the family safety center on that day. Okay.
If a protective order is filed against you and they failed to appear on that date, protective order will be dismissed.
