Domestic Violence Orders of Protection
Orders of protection are like restraining orders in the sense that they provide legal protection from a specific individual. However, orders of protection can contain certain requirements that go beyond what a restraining order can provide depending on your specific situation. The main condition of an order of protection is to ensure that an abuser keeps a certain distance from the victims, or they could face legal consequences. Orders of protection may also require the abuser to do the following:
- Get counseling
- Pay child support
- Turn over firearms
- Keep a distance from victim’s property
- Temporarily give up custody of their children
Getting an Order of Protection
To get an order of protection, you and the other party must appear in court for a hearing. The other party will be ordered by the court to appear and they can face consequences if they fail to show. You do have the option of getting an emergency order of protection that will go into effect immediately if you or your family is in danger.
