Need a Restraining Order?

There are two types of restraining orders available: ex parte temporary protective orders and a final domestic violence 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.
