Protection and Restraining Orders

Family law litigation often involves the need for protection of property or from the other party, or restraints to govern behavior moving forward. There are several different types of protection and restraining orders, including Restraining Order, Domestic Violence Protection Order, Sexual Assault Protection Order and Anti-HarassmentProtection Order.

Restraining Order: Many divorce cases involve the use of restraints, whether it be personal or financial restraints. Personal restraints often include requirements not to disturb the peace, stay from a parties home or workplace or in the case of children, from school or daycare. Personal restraints can also include provisions not to threaten and may even include a surrender of weapons to law enforcement. Financial restraints may include requirements not to dispose of property (i.e., selling off assets) and not to change insurance entitlements or beneficiaries. Lastly, when it comes to concerns about children, a restraint may be entered requiring that the parties not leave the State of Washington with the children. Many of these restraints in divorce cases are often made mutual to protect both parties.
