How Do Most Domestic Violence Cases End?

Most domestic violence defendants are first time offenders who have never been arrested before. Although it may seem very confusing, and stressful, the court may issue a protective order after the sentence is ordered out. The protective order can include a stay-away condition or a residency exclusion, but it does not have to.

What Does a Protection Order Do?

A protection order is a court order that protects a person, the applicant, by requiring that another person, the adverse party, abstain from certain behaviors. A temporary protection order lasts for 30 days while an extended protection order can last for up to one year.

An applicant can request an order of protection if they have been the victim of a crime involving sexual assault, harassment, or stalking perpetrated by the adverse party. A parent or guardian who has been impacted by a crime that is harmful to minors can also request a protective order.

Have you or a loved one been harmed?

Perhaps one of the most painful experiences a person can go through is being victimized by someone he or she loves. Everyone can feel anger, disappointment, or passion at one time or another. Unfortunately, when our emotions get the best of them, some people can act in ways they never thought possible of themselves. The repercussions of domestic violence or abuse could have long-lasting physical, emotional, mental, and psychological effects. In some cases, the damage is irreversible.

Common examples of domestic violence include:

  • Physical abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Verbal abuse
  • Emotional abuse
  • Psychological abuse
  • Family abuse
