Orders of Protection in Illinois

By Nottage and Ward on September 10, 2019

The Illinois State Police have some troubling statistics on their website: every 15 seconds, a woman in the U.S. is beaten, often by a romantic partner. To combat this, the State of Illinois passed the Illinois Domestic Violence Act of 1986, and our recent Supreme Court rulings have put more “teeth” into the legislation.

Orders of protection are a huge part of preventing domestic violence, and they give police officers the right to step in whenever a “family or household member” named in the order tries to make contact with the protected person or commit any act of abuse. For specific information on what to do if your spouse or ex is harassing you, please contact Nottage and Ward, LLP, at (312) 332-2915 right away.

Five Stars5 Leslie has been the strongest representation I could ask for

Leslie has been the strongest representation I could ask for in a very complicated, emotional matter. She has continuously looked out for my best interest and the best interest of my son. She is always prompt in getting back to me and in keeping me well informed about my case.
