Need a Restraining Order?
There are two types of

protective order. When you file for a protective order, the judge may
issue an ex parte temporary order if you are in immediate danger. This
order is meant to protect you until a full court hearing takes place.
After the court hearing, if the judge finds your case to be of merit,
then you may be granted a final domestic violence protective order.
