Restraining Orders

RSA 173-B protects any adult against domestic violence.

Minors can also petition for protection through the court system by asking the court to issue a restraining order against a person who is abusive. The abuser can be someone with whom there is or has been a romantic relationship. A person does not have to be married to or live with the abuser to seek protection through the courts. An abuser can be a current or former family or household member. On this website, there is a section that explains in detail how to obtain a restraining order through the courts. LINK.

Once a judge issues an order for protection forbidding the abuser from contact, it is against the law for the abuser to violate the order by doing something that the judge has forbidden.

It is a crime to violate the court order.
