Rob Rosenthal:

Can a parent get child support under a protective order or do they have to file for divorce? Let's ask Houston lawyer Duana Boswell-Loechel for an Ask the Lawyers Quick Question. 

Duana Boswell-Loechel:

The courts in a protective order situation do have the power to actually set up possession access and child support as part of the protective order, but it is suggested that they go in and they get an order from a court through a divorce or even a custody case, to solidify what those orders are because of the other side files, which often happens, then those orders will overrule the protective order.
