THE LAW
----------------------
It is Against the Law...
Restraining Orders

In New Hampshire, as well as in other states, the legislature recognizes that the physical, sexual, verbal and emotional abuse between present or former intimate partners needs to have a useful remedy that provides dignity, compassion, and effective control through law enforcement and the courts.

The legal responses to the national problem are designed to protect victims and punish and/or rehabilitate offenders. This narrative does not cover the scope of every law that could also be considered domestic abuse, but it provides a framework for assessing the behaviors and the possible procedures and outcomes that are commonly found in domestic situations where abuse has been alleged.

A link has been provided that has the full text of most laws associated with domestic violence.
