Temporary Protection Order, Otherwise known as a (TPO)

This is a lawful document, established by the Courts, in order to assist victims and their children in finding safety from individuals that are abusing, bullying, or placing them in fear for their safety. The victim completes a petition asking that a TPO be granted. Once the petition is finished, the victim will then go before a judge. If the judge awards the Order, the appropriate papers will be filed with the Clerk’s office. A court date will be assigned within 30 days. The Sheriff’s office will obtain a copy of the Order, so that the offender can be served with the official court Order. The victim must appear before a judge within 30 days of the original Order, to decide if the TPO should be extended for up to a year.
