DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

 Protecting Families 

        When a child or adult is in imminent danger of domestic violence, stalking violence or dating violence, the court can enter a protection order to secure his/her safekeeping. Such protection orders may prohibit the perpetrator from initiating contact with the threatened individual(s). Additionally, the perpetrator may not be allowed to come within a specific distance of the protected person(s).
