What Is A Domestic Violence Restraining Order?
Domestic violence is defined by the Family Code as abuse perpetrated against
a spouse, former spouse, cohabitant, dating relationship, a child of a
party, or any other blood relative. A domestic violence restraining order
is a court order prohibiting contact, physically and verbally, by the
abuser. If a person violates the restraining order, you can call the police,
or go to court for contempt.
As part of the domestic violence
restraining order, the court has jurisdiction to make temporary orders regarding
child custody and
visitation. Often time people forget that children need the most protection.
