Has an Emergency Protection Order (EPO) been filed against you? It is important that you act quickly to protect your rights. In Edmonton, you can turn to Robert M. Kassian for legal counsel
The EPO is granted pursuant to the provisions of the Protection Against Family Violence Act. The claimant can be any family member, including legally married and common-law spouses, persons living together in an “intimate” relationship and even children.
The Act allows a person to apply, without notice to you, for an Order to restrain you from your home, the claimant, and even contacting your children. It is also important to understand that even though the EPO may include restraining you from having contact with your children, the Court has no jurisdiction to order Access.
