How does a victim of domestic violence in Texas get a protective order? Let's ask Houston lawyer Duana Boswell Loechel for this Ask The Lawyers quick question.
There are actually a couple of different kinds of protective order in Texas. There's one out of the family code, which is what most people think, and that's usually with the physical violence, and then there is a sexual assault protective order, which is under the Criminal Code, and the first step is to contact an attorney or even the DA for the area and let them know that you wanna seek a protective order, and then you file a petition in the court just like any other case.
