I’m In The Military And My Spouse Got A Civilian Order Of Protection Against Me. Is It Enforceable On Post?

It is. The Department of Defense has ordered all military installations to treat orders of protection with the full force of law, regardless of whether they are military or civilian in origin.

This isn’t just a nuisance for you, either.

The order of protection will require that you not possess or use a firearm, which can have significant impact on your career, especially if you are facing criminal charges for a domestic violence crime.

Even at the misdemeanor level, a conviction can ban you from firearms use for the rest of your life and end your military career.

If you are a member of the armed services and facing domestic violence charges or a family court order of protection, you should see a lawyer right away.

The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help protect you and your career.
