Who can I add to an Order of Protection or Injunction Against Harassment?

Children, family members, or other persons may be included in an Order of Protection or an Injunction Against Harassment only if the judge determines it is appropriate under the circumstances.  If the family member or other person is an adult, the judge may require that this person be present when requesting the Protective Order.

Note: A Protective Order DOES NOT determine legal decision-making (custody) and cannot address parenting time issues. These matters must be handled separately by filing a domestic relations action in the superior court.
