Obtaining a Temporary Restraining Order

An Emergency Order of Protection ("EOP") can be issued immediately without notifying the alleged abuser. The order can be granted based on the petitioner’s testimony and may include additional, limited evidence. The EOP is considered an emergency order. Once issued, it may require the alleged abuser to vacate the home and prohibit contact with the victim and children. An EOP typically remains in effect for up to 21 days, after which a hearing is held to decide whether to terminate, modify, or extend the order for a period of up to two years.

Understanding Both Sides of Orders of Protection

Restraining orders must be pursued with sincerity and should never be used maliciously. Misuse of this legal tool can have far-reaching consequences, including impacts on:

  • Child-Parent relationships and parenting time
  • Child support
  • Spousal support
  • Restrictions from returning to one’s home
  • Prohibitions from possessing firearms

It is essential that both parties consider these factors seriously, as they can have lasting effects on personal relationships and legal rights.
