Family Violence Temporary Protective Order (TPO)

Protection Order If you have been abused or harassed, you can request a Protective Order. If you have a relationship with the person you want protection from you may ask the Court for a Family Violence Temporary Protective Order. If you are not related to the person you may petition the Court for protection from stalking. If the Court grants your petition, you will initially receive an Ex Parte Temporary Protective Order. If the Court grants your Ex Parte Temporary Protective Order, you will receive a court date to return for a hearing at which time you may ask the Court for a 12-Month Protective Order.
