When Can I Get A Domestic Violence Restraining Order?
A Domestic Violence Restraining Order is one of the most effective legal tools for combating and preventing domestic abuse. Essentially, a Domestic Violence Restraining Order is an order issued by the court that prohibits an abuser from contacting you, entering your home, or attempting to visit you at your job, school or anywhere you frequently go.
If you wish to petition for a Domestic Violence Restraining Order in New Hampshire, you must be able to show:
- The abuser is a family or household member, or you are, or were in the past, involved in an intimate relationship with the abuser
- The abuser abused you in some way, including through assault or harassment
- The abuser’s conduct constitutes a credible threat to your safety or well-being
When a Domestic Violence Restraining Order is put in place, the abuser may face criminal charges if he or she knowingly violates it. Additionally, if the court determines domestic violence exists, child custody and parenting plans may also be impacted.
