What Protections Do a Restraining Order Provide?
A protection from abuse order can provide numerous protections, but it is up to a judge to determine which yours will include.
A restraining order can:
- Order the abuser not to harass, stalk or abuse you, your children or your relatives
- Order the abuser to turn over any weapons he or she has to local police
- Order the abuser to stay away from and have no contact with your children
- Order the abuser to leave the home you share, even if he or she owns it
- Order the abuser to pay for expenses resulting from the abuse, including medical bills, new housing, attorney fees and expenses related to your children
