What goes into a Repeat Violence Injunction?
If a judge grants a temporary order of protection against repeat violence, there must be a hearing within 15 days. This period can be extended for good cause, such as the failure to serve the alleged abuser.
In a temporary order, the judge can order the following:
1. That the respondent commit no acts of violence,
2. That the respondent have no contact with the petitioner,
3. That the respondent not go within 100 feet of the petitioner car,
4. That the respondent no go within 500 feet of the petitioners current residence, any future residence, current or future employer, current or future school, and any place frequented by the petitioner or the petitioners children.
5. That the respondent not possess fire arms or ammunition and surrender any they do have to the sheriff’s office.
The judge also has the authority to order other measures deemed necessary to protect the petitioner.
If the judge finds that an immediate and present danger exists, the court can enter a final injunction that has a limited duration or will be in place until further order of the court.
