If you are able to obtain an Emergency Protective Order (EPO), the EPO can do a number of things to protect your health and safety during the time the protective order is effective. A protective order can prohibit:
All contact by the alleged abuser against the victim or the victim’s family members.
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.
