Any acts of violence, force, or threat or criminal offenses resulting injury to person or property.

Possession of a companion animal if the victim meets the requirements of an owner of such animal.

Other conditions the judge deems necessary to protect the victim or family members

Grant temporary possession of the residence to the victim.
