Types Of Restraining Orders

There are four different types of restraining orders designed to help victims of harassment or domestic violence:

  1. Emergency Protective Order or EPO – This is issued by law enforcement and valid for no more than five court days. It protects victims of:
    • Domestic violence
    • Child abuse
    • Stalking
    • Child abduction
  2. Domestic Violence Temporary Restraining Order (also called TRO or DVRO) – This restraining order is issued by a judge for victims of domestic violence for an initial period of 15-21 days. An additional court date will follow the order at which time the judge may cancel the temporary order or extend the order for up to three years.
  3. Criminal Protective Order (No Contact Order) – This is obtained through the district attorney’s office to protect victims or witnesses of a crime.
  4. Civil Harassment Restraining Order – This restraining order is often obtained for individuals who do not qualify for a domestic violence order. The order may be issued initially for 15-21 days. An additional court date will follow the order at which time the judge may cancel the order or extend it for up to three years. Civil Harassment Orders can be obtained to stop:
    • Stalking
    • Harassment
