What is a Restraining Order?
Restraining orders are known as orders of protection. These orders require individuals to follow specific orders noted in the restraining order. They normally require the served party to restrain from the addressed orders. Restraining orders are most commonly served along side domestic violence, and sexual assault cases. The guidelines and regulations surrounding restraining order laws vary for each state.
