Restraining orders – also called orders of protection – are sometimes enacted in emergency situations without an extensive legal process. If police are called to deal with a household disturbance, one party is usually taken into custody and often charged. In a divorce case or custody dispute, any history of violence will weigh heavily in the outcome – sometimes impacting property distribution along with parenting rights.
