Domestic Violence Protection Order

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-Harassment Protection Order.

Domestic Violence Protection Order: Protection orders in Domestic Violence cases generally involve parties who were married, in a dating relationship, domestic partners, cohabitants or relatives of some kind. Victims of domestic violence can obtain protection from future physical harm, threats, stalking (including cyberstalking), being kept under surveillance and having no contact with the other party. Protection can also include exclusive use of a residence and keeping the responding party away from the home, workplace and school. A common misperception is that some sort of assault or arrest has had to take recently place, which is not necessary to obtain a domestic violence protection order.
