The Dangers of a Civil Protective Order

In this episode of the Legal Zone, we speak with Amir, a man who is going through a story that you can’t imagine is happening and cannot believe. Before a civil protection order was filed, Amir and the mother of his 2 children were involved in the #muslimdivorce process with reciprocal child custody arrangements. After some time, however, the attitudes and actions of the mother changed which led to the filing & implementation of a CPO, an interfamily offense which when implemented by a court, creates a presumption that you’re unfit and can no longer can share joint custody.

How Civil Protective Orders Effect Child Custody

Join us as we hear Amir's’ story involving parental kidnapping, interfamily offenses, the Islamic divorce process and the uphill battle Amir is going through to again be a part of his children’s life.

Civil Protective Orders can have many benefits to protecting individuals such as formers spouses, children and others who are fearful of actions from another. While there are legal protections put in place with these orders, they also put a presumption of guilt on the other party where it's assumed that their unfit to have joint custody, or in extreme cases, any type of child custody or visitation.

This being said, there are instances where false accusations can directly lead to the loss of child custody, visitation and parenting time.
