A restraining order, also called a protection order, is a paper signed
by a judge that orders a respondent (retrained party) to have no contact
with a person or persons for a certain period. These orders are usually
filed in domestic or family violence, stalking, or sexual assault cases.
Likewise, in the state of Indiana, there are two types of restraining order
a person could file. The first is called an emergency temporary restraining
order (TRO). This type of order lasts for a maximum of 60 days in an emergency.
These are usually issued if someone feels threatened by another person
and requires immediate assistance.
The second kind of order is just called a protective order. This type of
order lasts for up to 1 year and can be extended by the court for an additional
year. If no hearing is requested by either party within 30 days, the ex
parte order for protection can last for up to 2 years after the date it
was granted unless another date is ordered by the court. However, the
restrained party has a right to contest the order in court.
