(Petition for Protection from Abuse Complaint)
Your eligibility in filing for a restraining order depends upon whether you meet the legal definition of domestic abuse and what your relationship is to the abuser. Your relationship also determines whether you file in family court or district court.
You can be eligible to file for a restraining order in family court if:
- you or your minor child has been the victim of an act of domestic abuse, as defined by law, committed by:
- a spouse or former spouse;
- a parent or step-parent;
- a child or step-child;
- a present or former family member;
- someone related to you by blood or marriage (e.g., a brother-in-law or uncle);
- someone with whom you have a child in common; or
- someone you have dated seriously or been engaged to within the past one year, if at least one of you is a minor. (If you are both adults, you would file in district court.) Note: It is up to the court to decide whether your relationship is “serious enough” to qualify for a restraining order. The judge will look at factors such as:
- the length of time of the relationship;
- the type of relationship you had; and
- how often you both interacted with each other.
- your minor child is the victim and the abuser is not related to your child by blood or marriage; for example, if your boyfriend harms your child;
- the domestic abuse is committed between or against minor children of serious dating partners; or
- anyone, regardless of the relationship, has sexually exploited a minor child. In that case, the minor child can qualify for a restraining order.
