Emergency Situations

Oklahoma City Domestic Violence Lawyers

At times there are emergency situations that will not wait for a date on the court docket. There is trouble in the home, and it is necessary to act quickly.

At McGill & Rodgers Attorneys and Counselors at Law, we are frequently involved in requesting emergency orders, aimed at preventing one person from harming others. Our goal is to minimize damage and trauma in very difficult situations.

Emergency Custody Orders to Prevent Child Abuse

You may have reason to suspect your child is in danger in the other parent's custody, or the other parent may have relocated with the child in violation of custody agreements.

You have the right to request emergency custody orders to protect the child from harm or to demand that the existing custody agreement is enforced.

Quick-Acting Edmond Protection Order Attorneys

The lawyers at McGill & Rodgers have worked with scores of families to protect children when one parent crosses the line into abusive or criminal situations. Situations calling for emergency custody orders include:

  • Evidence of physical or emotional abuse of the child
  • Sexual involvement with the child
  • Conducting illegal activities in the presence of minor children
  • The threat or action of taking the child out of state illegally

These are complex situations, and the law provides a variety of responses, including ex parte custody orders, protective orders, modifications of custody and visitation orders, and terminations of parental rights.

The worst response to a dangerous situation is to do nothing and hope things will get better. For the love of your child, the right thing to do is to take action today. LeAnne McGill and Faye Rodgers have stepped in and prevented many bad situations from deteriorating further. We offer our counsel and knowledge to you during this difficult time.
