A personal protection order (PPO) is an order issued by the court. In situations where there is a domestic relationship, it can protect you from harassment, assault, beating, molesting, wounding, or stalking by another person. It provides police to prevent a crime before it happens, by preventing the other person from purchasing a firearm or interfering with your daily activities. The order can also prohibit him/her from entering your premises and removing minor children unless the removal is part of a court parenting time order.

In this episode of “Ask Henry,” with attorney Henry Gornbein, our question is, “What can we reasonably expect from the legal system, including Attorneys, Judges, Friend of the Court, and Mediators?”

Henry walks us through the steps of determining what you should expect from your attorney and what you should be looking for when selecting one. The conversation then shifts to reasonable expectations for the judge overseeing your case.  Judges are all different and rule as such.  Another part of the family law system is the Friend of The Court, and Henry helps us understand the system.

Finally, we take a look at what you can expect from a family law mediator.  The court process during divorce can be daunting, so the more you know early on, the better the possible outcome.
