Gaining a Restraining Order in Oregon

There are many benefits a restraining order can provide if you or a member of your household is being victimized or threatened with domestic abuse. These benefits include:

  • Removing the accused from your home
  • Barring the accused from the general vicinity of you and your children
  • If the accused is also your spouse, a restraining order can allow for the start of divorce proceedings

Do not wait to seek the protection a restraining order can grant you. Besides protecting you from physical abuse, a restraining order will also end the harassing phone calls, emails and any other form of communication from the abuser. If he or she chooses to contact you after a restraining order has been entered, call the police immediately. A person who violates a restraining order will potentially face strict penalties such as fines, probation or jail time.
