How Men Benefit from Protection Orders in Ft. Walton Beach
If a man feels threatened, or feels that his family has been threatened by a spouse or anyone else, they may feel that the masculine thing to do is defend themselves and their family without the assistance of a court order or the Ft. Walton Beach authorities. This can only cause more problems down the road, especially if the situation escalates.
A legal protection order not only provides you with safety, it also provides documentation of any incidents that pose a threat to you or your children. This documentation is especially helpful if you’re seeking a divorce by providing grounds for filing for divorce and evidence to help you during the proceedings.
Getting Help for Your Protection Order
It isn’t always easy to have an order granted by a court, especially for men. The court will require you to provide clear evidence of abuse or threats including:
- Specific description of an occurrence or occurrences
- A detailed history of abuse or threats of abuse
- Evidence of current threats including phone calls, emails, and more.
