Criminal Temporary Protective Orders

Taxonomy Code: FT-6940.1900-150

Programs that help victims of domestic abuse obtain a protective order against an alleged domestic violence offender in situations where the offender has been arrested for harming the victim and, where relevant, the victim is willing to press charges. A criminal protective order (also known as a temporary protection order or TPO) prohibits the domestic violence defendant from contacting the victim, generally until and over the course of the trial and, in some cases, during the individual's probation or period of incarceration. If the charges are dropped or the case is dismissed, the criminal protective order is no longer in effect. Included are "stay away" orders which prohibit in-person contact with the protected party and "no contact" orders which prohibit communication by any means.
