File a Request for Domestic Violence Restraining Order

A divorce violence restraining order, also known as a domestic violence restraining order in the context of divorce, is a legal court order issued to protect an individual, often a spouse or partner, from physical, emotional, or psychological abuse by their estranged or soon-to-be-ex-spouse during divorce proceedings or afterward. These orders are granted when there is evidence of domestic violence, including threats, physical harm, harassment, or intimidation within the context of a divorce or separation. The order typically mandates that the abusive party must stay away from the victim, their home, workplace, and any children involved, while also prohibiting contact and communication. The primary goal is to ensure the safety and well-being of the victim and any dependents during the sensitive period of divorce or separation. Violating such an order can result in legal consequences for the abusive party.
