Who Is Eligible to Obtain a Civil Protection Order?
Any person who feels they are in danger of or have experienced violence
from someone close to them can file for a civil protection order.
However, this aggressor must be:
- Someone they are currently or have been previously married to
- Someone they are related to
- Someone they have lived with (dating or not)
- Someone they share a child with
- Someone they are dating
- Someone they have had a sexual relationship with
Petitioning for a Civil Protection Order
To petition for a civil protection order, the victim or someone close to
the victim must submit a document to the court that details why they are
seeking this order. Additionally, the document asks the court to enter
an order of protection for a certain period of time. Once this petition
is filed, the court will grant a temporary order for 14 days or until
a hearing can be held to deal with the issue.
A copy of the petition is served to the alleged aggressor who has the legal
right to go before the judge and speak at the hearing. The alleged aggressor
can choose to fight the order or allow it to be put in place. If they
choose to fight the order, the victim is responsible for proving why the
order is necessary.
