Apply for a Protection OrderWhat is a Protection Order?

A protection order is a legal document that specifies the conditions that an abuser must adhere to, as specified by the courts. For example, the abuser:

  • Should not commit any act of domestic abuse.
  • Should pay you rent, mortgage, or other monies, such as child support.
  • Should hand over firearms or dangerous weapons to the police.

Before obtaining a protection order, you need to apply for an interim protection order. To do this, you need to apply to the court. The interim order specifies the date at which the final order will be considered. And once the final order is made, it is permanent and can only be changed by applying to the courts.:
