Adult Abuse and Child Protection

Missouri law provides a safety net for victims of abuse. If you are the subject of abuse, stalking, or credible threats against your safety or the safety of your child, you may be granted an ex-parte order of protection. Once you are granted an order of protection, a court date is set. The person who is accused of the abuse is served with the paperwork and is allowed to come to court on the court date and defend against the accusations.
