Legally shield yourself from future harm.
Sometimes referred to as a 50B order or a restraining order, a Domestic Violence Protective Order (DVPO) is a restraining order specifically used for victims of domestic violence. These orders give victims the protection they need from their abuser. These orders are also different from a general restraining order because they allow the court to grant a more specific type of protection and allow law enforcement to criminally charge the abuser if they violate the order.
Before the court will grant a DVPO, several domestic violence 50-B hearings will occur. During domestic violence 50-B hearings, the judge will determine that you have a personal relationship with the abuser, and you were the victim of domestic violence. It is your responsibility to prove both of these things to the judge during your hearing.
