The Different Types of Protection Orders
Temporary protection orders are obtained ex parte, which means that the alleged victim presents his or her case to a judge without the alleged perpetrator’s knowledge or presence. If a court believes that the victim is in danger of imminent harm that can only be prevented by issuance of a protection order, then the Court will issue a temporary protection order. The temporary protection order is effective upon personal service and may last up to 14 days. Within 14 days, the Court will set a date for a permanent protection order hearing. This hearing coincides with the expiration of the temporary protection order.
A permanent protection order hearing will determine if the protection order will be extended. At this time, the Court will hear testimony from both parties and additional evidence will be submitted.
