What is required to get a restraining order in Virginia?

In Virginia, restraining order is called the protective order. This order is important when you are being forced by any other person into violence or being threatened with acts of physical, sexual, emotion or psychological harassment. You can obtain a protective order when you go to a General District Court and demonstrate the judge that the protective order is necessary to protect your life and your loved ones. This order is for those who do not fall under definition of family abuse sections of code in Virginia. You have to file the family abuse protective orders into JDR court (Domestic Relations District Court).

If you are filing for a restraining order, you are the petitioner and offender is respondent. You can download forms online or can visit to SRIS Law Group to consult. You must provide the contact information for the respondent. You also have to describe how he or she has harmed or threatened to harm you or your family members. If seeking a family abuse order, you must provide information of your relationship to the respondent.

At the full hearing, the respondent has the opportunity to defend his or herself against the allegations imposed by you.
