What is domestic violence? Subsection three defines domestic violence as physical harm, bodily harm, assault, or the infliction of fear of imminent physical harm, bodily injury, or assault on a family or household member.
It has to be someone that you’ve lived with or you are related to or have children with.
Without that connection, it doesn’t matter what the conduct between you was or what you allege happened, or what the other person did, you will not be eligible to seek this particular order.
How long does the Domestic violence protection order last?
It’s a year on default. However, if you’re concerned that a family or household member has committed domestic violence against a minor, you have the right to seek protection on behalf of your minor child.
