December 4, 2009

Jenny WrayOrders of protection can be obtained by individuals to prevent stalking, abuse, or the threat of abuse.  At the initial court appearance, the protected party may receive a temporary protective order. Approximately 14 days later, the protected party must attend a second hearing to make the temporation order of protection permanent.  The restrained party must attend in order to contest the order. Both parties must meet the court's procedural requirements and provide the burden of proof to either enforce, or contest a protection order.
