What do these papers mean?
Restraining Order (DV-109, DV-100, DV-110)
If you received any of these forms, someone asked for a restraining order against you:
- Notice of Court Hearing (form DV-109)
- Request for Domestic Violence Restraining Order (form DV-100)
- Temporary Restraining Order (form DV-110)
A restraining order would limit your contact with the person asking for a restraining order. If you and the other side have a child together, the restraining order can include orders for child support and custody. If you're married, it can include orders for spousal support. A restraining order could impact your life in other ways, including preventing you from having guns and ammunition.
You have a court date where a judge will decide if they will grant the restraining order, which can last up to 5 years.
