Summary

Emergency protective order; required conditions; petition to dissolve or modify. Requires any emergency protective order to prohibit (i) the respondent from committing acts of family abuse or criminal offenses that result in injury to person or property and (ii) such contacts by the respondent with the allegedly abused person or family or household members of the allegedly abused person, including prohibiting the respondent from being in the physical presence of the allegedly abused person or family or household members of the allegedly abused person, as the judge or magistrate deems necessary to protect the safety of such persons. Under current law, a judge or magistrate must only impose one or more of such prohibitions when issuing an emergency protective order. Other conditions that may be imposed under current law remain under the discretion of the judge or magistrate. The bill also allows the petitioner of an emergency protective order to file a motion with the court requesting a hearing to dissolve or modify the order.
