Domestic Violence FAQ

Domestic violence involves intentional actions that harm or attempt to harm a person with whom the perpetrator is in a close relationship. The abuse could include

  • Sexual assault
  • Verbal threats to one’s person or others in or outside the household
  • Stalking behavior
  • Threatening
  • Harassment
  • Destructive acts on personal property
  • Acts that disturb the peace
  • Physical violence

A domestic violence restraining order (DVRO) is a court order that protects you from an intimate partner or close associate who is abusing or harassing you. In many cases, the perpetrator is a husband, wife, girlfriend, or boyfriend, but it could also be a child, sibling, parents, grandparents, roommate, sibling, or another close relative. Restraining orders against individuals that are not closely associated or related to you are called civil harassment restraining orders (CVROs). Speak to your lawyer about your situation, and we will help you choose the best solution to keep you safe.

A DVRO prevents your abuser from seeing you or your children, living in your home, owning a firearm, or being present in specific places, like your place of work or child’s school.

You can file a DVRO on behalf of your child. This approach is recommended in cases where the child has witnessed abuse and is traumatized by the experience, but the court will often request that you exhaust all other options before they grant the request. You will generally have to prove they are a threat before a DVRO is issued.
