A protective order is a court-issued document that legally prevents a person from coming within a certain distance of an abuse victim. For example, if you are charged or convicted of physically abusing a domestic relation, then you could have protective order issued against you that prevents you from coming within a certain distance of the victim's home, workplace, vehicle, or person. Those who are eligible to obtain restraining orders must meet certain criteria. They must be a blood relative or married relative, currently or formerly living together, or have a child in common.
If the court determines that a person is the victim of domestic violence, and the court suspects that they could be victimized again, then the court may issue a protective order against aggressor. If you are facing charges of domestic violence, then you need to pursue skilled representation in your situation as soon as possible. In addition to a protective order, you could face other serious penalties upon conviction depending on the severity of your charge, such as jail, prison time, and substantial fines.
