Child Protective Orders: Safeguarding Children's Well-being

Child Protective Orders are vital legal tools designed to protect children from abusive or dangerous situations. At the Law Office of Bryan Fagan, we are deeply committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of children through the proper implementation and enforcement of Child Protective Orders.

Understanding Child Protective Orders


A Child Protective Order (CPO), also known as a Child Protective Services (CPS) order, is a legal directive issued by a court to safeguard the well-being and safety of a child. These orders are typically implemented when there is a reasonable belief or evidence of child abuse, neglect, endangerment, or other situations that put the child at risk.


Child Protective Orders can include various provisions, such as:


  • – Restraining a parent, guardian, or other individuals from contacting or approaching the child.
  • – Establishing supervised visitation for a parent.
  • – Removing a child from an abusive or dangerous environment.
  • – Mandating counseling or therapy for the child or parents.
  • – Imposing restrictions on the child’s interactions with certain individuals.

The Importance of Child Protective Orders


Child Protective Orders play a crucial role in ensuring the safety and well-being of children. These orders help to:


1. Protect Children from Harm

CPOs are a legal tool used to prevent children from being exposed to abusive, neglectful, or harmful situations.

2. Provide a Safe Environment

They establish a safe environment for the child by limiting contact with individuals who may pose a danger.

3. Ensure Compliance with the Law

Child Protective Orders ensure that parents or guardians adhere to legal obligations, including attending counseling or therapy sessions and addressing issues that led to the issuance of the order.

4. Establish Supervised Visitation

In cases where a parent’s behavior may be a risk to the child, CPOs can mandate supervised visitation to ensure the child’s safety during interactions.



The Child Protective Order Process


Child Protective Orders are a result of a legal process that typically includes:


1. Petitioning the Court

A party, such as a family member, law enforcement, or Child Protective Services, petitions the court for a Child Protective Order, outlining the reasons for the order request.

2. Evaluation and Hearings

The court evaluates the circumstances and may conduct hearings to determine whether a Child Protective Order is necessary.

3. Issuance of the Order

If the court deems it necessary, it will issue a Child Protective Order with specific provisions to ensure the child’s safety.

4. Legal Representation

Having an experienced family law attorney is crucial to navigate the legal complexities of Child Protective Orders and protect the rights and well-being of all parties involved.
