A Look at Restraining Orders vs. Protective Orders

Last updated 5 years ago

In order to keep yourself or your loved ones safe, you may want to obtain either a restraining or a protective order against someone. This video discusses the differences between these two legal courses of action.

A protective order generally lasts for two years, and specifically delineates what the other party can and cannot do with respect to your place of residence and work. Meanwhile, a restraining order is a mutual agreement between both parties that they should stay away from one another. A protective order is both stronger and more specific.
