Arlington Heights Civil No-Contact Orders Attorney
A civil no-contact order is similar to an order of protection in Illinois. There are two types of civil no-contact orders. An emergency order lasts from 14-21 days, while a long-term civil no-contact order can last up to 2 years. Once those 2 years have passed, it is possible to ask for an extension for up to 2 more years.
Unlike an order of protection, where there has to be some form of relationship present, a civil no-contact order is for people who were not in a relationship with the offender.
If you feel you or a member of your family is in danger of physical or psychological harm, we can help you seek a civil no-contact order through the Cook County, DuPage County and Lake County courts. The Law Offices of Donald J. Cosley in Rolling Meadows will expedite your petition through the court in your county of residence.

Just like an order of protection, a civil no-contact order may be modified to be specific for each client or based on a change in circumstance. A parent is also able to request a civil no-contact order on behalf of a minor child or an adult who, because of disability, health or inaccessibility, cannot file a petition.
Attorney Donald Cosley can assist you in filling out and filing the civil no-contact order at the courthouse. For more than 20 years, Mr. Cosley has been protecting the rights of his clients throughout Illinois.
