The law provides when there has been violence in the home the victim can request a restraining order. A restraining order, if granted, can order a person to stay away, restrict contact, set custody and visitation orders, set support orders, order batter’s treatment, allow recording of conversations and will order the relinquishment of all firearms. Violation of a restraining order can result in being arrested.
Initially a victim will request a temporary restraining order. If granted the temporary restraining order will remain in effect until the court hearing. At the hearing the court will hear testimony and take evidence to determine if a continued restraining order is warranted. At the hearing the alleged perpetrator has the opportunity to present their side. Not all requests for restraining orders result in continued orders.
