An order of protection or restraining order establishes guidelines designed to keep the abusive person away from the spouse or partner. A restraining order may also require the person to financially support the family during ongoing divorce proceedings.

A police officer serves the order, which contains a date of a hearing two weeks in the future. This allows the abuser to appear in court, where the judge will determine if the order is to become permanent.
