In cases of abuse or violence, a victim can seek protection by filing a restraining or protective order. These orders prevent an alleged abuser from contacting or coming within a certain distance of a victim. Other actions may include emergency monetary relief, removing the alleged abuser from a shared residence or amendments to custody arrangements or parenting time.
You should consider consulting a family law attorney to file or challenge a protective order of any kind including:
- Family Abuse Prevention Act (FAPA)
- Sexual Abuse Protective Orders (SAPOs)
- Stalking Protection Orders
- Extreme Risk Protection Orders (ERPOs)
- Elderly Persons and Persons with Disabilities Abuse Prevention Act (EPPDAPA)
