In Oregon, a restraining order is available to you if you have been the victim of domestic abuse or if you fear you will be a victim. The Family Abuse Prevention Act, or FAPA, allows for protection from abuse while you are going through a divorce. It is important to fully understand what you are asking for when you seek FAPA protection and if you are the recipient of a FAPA restraining order, you must fully understand and comply with the orders you have received.
A Washington County Restraining Order Attorney can help you understand your rights and responsibilities and walk you through the process as needed. It is crucial that you follow any restraining orders that are in place and that you understand what a FAPA order can and can’t do for you if you are the party requesting it.
