What Can A Protection Order Do For Me?
There are a number of different types of protection orders Ohio courts can provide, but victims of domestic abuse may be issued a Civil Protection Order (CPO). These orders are intended to prevent domestic abuse from occurring again, orders the abuser to do certain things and prevents them from doing others. Some of the protections include:
- Directing the abuser to stop their abusive actions.
- Grant the victims possession of the home or residence and require the abuser to vacate the premises, or require the abuser to provide the victim with alternative suitable housing.
- Award temporary custody of any children to the victim.
- Require the abuser to provide financial support for the victim.
- Require the abuser to undergo counseling.
- Restrict the abuser from entering the place of employment, business, school, or residence of the victim or other family members.
Even people who receive a Domestic Violence Temporary Protection Order (DVTPO) from a criminal court are encouraged to seek a CPO because it offers protection for a longer period of time. No matter what, it’s best to speak with your attorney about your legal options in order to determine your best course of action.
