Protection Orders Against Domestic Violence Lawyer in Clinton North Carolina

Survivors of domestic violence have multiple options that will act to protect them from additional abuse. These options can be identified more specifically as domestic violence orders of protection. These orders include emergency protection orders, protection orders, and restraining orders. Although these orders may not necessarily stop the abuser from stalking the victim. However, with one of these orders in place, the victim will be able to have the abuser arrested if any order is violated. 

Each order has a unique purpose. However, each order is ultimately intended to protect the victim and prevent any further abuse. Emergency protection orders are often issued when police encounter a domestic violence situation. In many states, the police can give the victim an emergency protection order which is a short-term protection order given to a victim by the police when the abuser is arrested for domestic violence. This order is usually for a limited period of time and allows the victim the request a longer-term protection order. A protection order differs from an emergency protection order because it is usually a long-term order, usually lasting years. A victim can also renew the protection order if the victim still feels threatened by his or her abuser. A protection order can include several different provisions such as a no-contact provision, peaceful contact provision, stay away provision, move out provision, firearm provision, or counseling provision. Restraining orders can be useful to domestic violence victims because restraining orders may be requested “ex parte” which means a victim is permitted to a hearing where they can present their side of the story without telling the other party.
