Get the Protection You Need

When someone is in imminent danger of physical harm or any form of domestic violence, the court can enter a protection order to secure his or her safe keeping. Domestic Violence Protection Orders may prohibit a party from initiating contact with the threatened individual and affected minors. Additionally, the restrained person may be prohibited from coming within a specific distance of the protected individual(s).

Domestic violence protection orders can vary depending on the unique circumstances of each case. In family law cases, orders of protection often involve special provisions for child visitation, exchanges of children, and communication regarding visitation and exchange.

Zero-Tolerance in Washington State
