Domestic Violence Restraining Orders (DVROs) are civil orders that provide protection from imminent danger of abuse, harassment, or stalking by a family or household member. A DVRO may be obtained while a dissolution is pending or before any proceeding has begun.

A DVRO can:

  • Order the abuser to stay away from you, your children, other relatives, and pets
  • Prohibit the abuser from contacting you by telephone, mail, or other means
  • Order the abuser to move out of your shared residence
  • Grant you temporary custody of your children
  • Prohibit the abuser from being near your workplace or your child’s school
  • Prohibit the abuser from owning or possessing a firearm
