How Do Orders For Protection Work?
What Protections Are Included?
If the order is granted, it may offer certain protections, including:
- Restrain the parties from having any contact with each other which can include no contact in person, by telephone, letter or through a third party.
- Grant possession of a home to one of the parties.
- Establish temporary custody and parenting time.
- Grant temporary child support or spousal maintenance to one of the parties.
- Order one or both of the parties to participate in counseling or therapy.
- Award temporary possession of personal property.
- Order a party that the court believes has committed domestic abuse to compensate the victim for medical bills and/or lost income as a result of injuries sustained.
Whether or not a judge orders any, or all of the above, depends on the facts of your Minnesota domestic violence case.
