Domestic abuse, or the imminent threat of, should be immediately reported to police. Additionally, there are steps you can take to have a court order the perpetrator of domestic violence to stay away from your residence and workplace and your child's school. Called a Protective Order, the court can also order the abuser to attend counseling, prohibit the possession of a firearm and cease all communication with you. The court must enter a protective order upon finding that domestic violence has occurred and is likely to be committed in the future. These orders can be valid for up to 2 years or longer. The violation of any provision of a protective order can result in arrest and subject the offender to criminal penalties.
