How can I obtain a domestic violence protective order?

A party seeking a domestic violence protective order may apply for one by filing a complaint and motion for a domestic violence protective order. When the complaint and motion for domestic violence protective order is filed, the plaintiff (the filing party) has an opportunity to seek an ex parte temporary protective order, which may last up to 10 days, until a hearing is set to determine whether the protective order will be extended, typically for up to one year.
