Question: I have an Emergency Protective Order placed on myself by my sons father. And now he is in contact with me. what do i do?
Answer: An Emergency Order of Protection is a legal restraint to prevent domestic violence. An Emergency Order may be granted by an authorized judicial officer in writing, verbally or by telephone for the protection of a person in "imminent and present danger of domestic violence." An Emergency Order may be used to order a person not to commit acts of domestic violence or contact people protected by the order. Similar to the Order of Protection, it also provides protective relief, such as exclusive use of the home and removing firearms from an abuser. Unless continued by the court, an Emergency Order is valid only until the close of the next day of judicial business following the day that the Emergency Order was issued. If he has contacted you without the Protective Order being continued by the court, it is no longer a valid Emergency Order of Protection.
