Victim Protection Orders
Victims of domestic abuse, stalking or harassment can get protection through a VPO.
Oklahoma law provides for quick and immediate protection for victims of domestic abuse, stalking or harassment by means of a Victim’s Protective Order, or VPO. In certain circumstances, an Emergency Temporary VPO can be obtained within 24 hours and a more permanent VPO within 10 days.
Certain legal requirements are needed to obtain a VPO, and Phillips Murrah’s family law attorneys assist clients in the process of requesting and obtaining an Emergency VPO.
In addition, our attorneys represent clients before the Court to obtain a permanent VPO, which will provide the protection needed, as well as defend against a VPO that is not legally warranted.
