Emergency Protection Order Lawyers in Edmonton

An Emergency Protection Order (EPO) is a serious court order that you should strongly consider seeing a Virk Law lawyer for, whether you are seeking an EPO or defending against one. If you require an EPO or need to defend against one, contact our office immediately for assistance and one of our lawyers may be able to see you as soon as today.

What does an EPO do

An EPO is intended to immediately stop family violence. “Family violence” is a term used generally to describe various instances defined in law that are not acceptable between individuals that have an existing relationship. A Virk Law lawyer can guide you through whether the law applies to you in seeking or defending against an EPO.

Do I need a lawyer to get an EPO

No. Often, police will direct a victim of family violence to seek an EPO immediately. There are instances however, that after an interview by a Virk Law lawyer, it will be identified that you and your family need an EPO immediately. Our lawyers are trained to recognize instances of family violence (beyond just physical abuse) that require our clients to be fully protected.

Do I need a lawyer to defend against an EPO

Our suggestion is an overwhelming yes. An EPO is a serious court order that, if breached, will immediately result in incarceration. Virk Law lawyers are trained to defend against EPOs being granted against clients from initial documents through a full hearing.
