Do I need an attorney to get an order for protection of children?

No, you do not need a lawyer to get an order for protection of children,1 but it is often better to have one.  It may be in your interest to hire an attorney, especially if you think the abuser will be represented by one.  You might be able to find an attorney on our NV Finding a Lawyer page.
