A Child Order of Protection is filed on behalf of the child, typically by a parent, to provide protections to the child from sexual, physical, or emotional abuse. In the state Missouri, a Guardian ad litem ("GAL") is appointed in every child order of protection case. A GAL is typically an attorney, who the Court will appoint to represent the minor child. After reading this page, if you have any questions, an experienced attorney will be able to discuss further matters regaurding a Child Order of Protection.
A Child Order of Protection cannot be entered against the other parent if there is a prior custody order. Usually the only way to change a custody schedule is to file a Motion to Modify Custody and Visitation, when there has been a previous Order of Custody filed.
In the state of Missouri, a Court may enter a Temporary Injunction and Restraining Order. This will prevent the other parent from exercising custody, but this is only in rare cases. Certain requirements have to be met before a Court will enter a Temporary Injunction and Restraining Order. Temporary Injunctions and Restraining Orders may be used in divorce cases for other reasons. These reasons could be when one party spends or hides assets and the other spouse does not have access to the assets or accounts. It is recommended that you should consult with an experienced Missouri family law lawyer regarding your options. If you have any further questions, please contact
