Bolivar, MO asked in Domestic Violence, Child Custody and Child Support for Missouri

Q: What does “consent judgment against (name) for full order of child protection - civil suit disposed” mean?

I saw this in a newspaper article and am confused on what it means. Against makes it sound not good for the person but then it says disposed so is that good? Also what is the full order of child protection?

A: Consent judgment means the parties agreed, or at least one party did not show up and contest the action. A full order of child protection is an restraining order on behalf of the child; and disposed means that the court has made a final decision. The whole thing means that a restraining order on behalf of the child was ordered against that party and the matter has been heard in court.
