What Is An Order Of Protection? How Could It Affect Your Life?
Under Washington law, individuals who have suffered family violence or the threat of violence can seek legal protection from the court. A judge has the power to grant an order of protection or restraining order based on physical, emotional or mental abuse.
The order provides protection by limiting or restricting the actions of the individual against whom the order has been filed. A protection order can include terms that:
- Significantly limit or prohibit contact through various modes of communication
- Require supervised visitation with children
- Set restrictions or special requirements for child exchanges
- Grant one individual use or possession of a shared home
