Restraining orders protect domestic violence victims


Restraining orders can help victims stay safer at home during the holidays when domestic violence tends to escalate.  According to Steve Vickman of Help of Door County, advocates work with victims to file restraining orders against their abusers.  He says although some think it is only a piece of paper, a restraining order can really work to the benefit of a victim.

 

 

In Wisconsin, restraining orders are based on domestic abuse, child abuse, harassment, and for individuals at risk, according to womenslaw.com.  A restraining order can be granted for up to two to four years.
