Types of Restraining Orders
There are several different types of restraining orders available, depending on the relationship between the parties, the nature of the abuse, and the orders sought. It’s important that you request the correct type of restraining order. If you file the wrong type, the court will not be able to issue any orders, and you will need to start over again.
