A Protection Order generally prevents one party from contacting the other. They will usually prevent the restrained party from being within one hundred (100) yards of the other party. Protection orders are valid everywhere. The protected party remains protected from the restrained party regardless of a change in location. Before you obtain a permanent protection order, you must file your complaint with the court and obtain a temporary protection order. After obtaining the temporary protection order you return to court fourteen (14) days later to argue why the temporary order should be made permanent.
