Fighting a Protective Order in Virginia
Can You Remove a Protective Order?
Having a protective order placed against you is a serious legal matter which can have far-reaching consequences. Besides prohibiting certain contact with the individual who issued the protective order against you, a protective order will show up on criminal background checks. Additionally, while the protective order is in effect, you will not be able to possess a firearm.
