Frequently Asked Questions

Anyone who is a victim of abuse, domestic violence or stalking should consider seeking a restraining order, also known as a protective order. When a minor child has been the victim of domestic violence, any interested party is authorized to request a restraining order on the child’s behalf.

To seek a domestic violence protective order, you must live or have lived in the same residence as the abuser, have a child or unborn child with the abuser, or be related by blood or marriage to the abuser. You are not required to seek a divorce, and there is no fee. The applicant must fill out forms, file them with the court, and attend court hearings. A county sheriff usually serves the paperwork on the abuser.

Unfortunately, some people file police reports that contain false allegations of domestic violence. In other cases, the accusations may be greatly exaggerated. An experienced Utah domestic violence attorney can help you present your side of the story in your defense.
