Restraining Orders

Family Abuse Prevention Act Restraining Orders (FAPA) are intended to provide for protection from abuse by family, household members, or someone with whom you have had a sexual relationship. The abuse must have been committed within the last 180 days unless the abuser has been incarcerated or has lived more than 100 miles from you.  If you are 65 years of age or older or a person with disabilities, you may be eligible for an Elderly Persons and Persons with Disabilities Abuse Prevention Act Restraining Order (EPPDAPA).
