Temporary Order of Protection
Has there been a restraining order placed against you? A restraining order or temporary order for protection lasts for fourteen days and is not a criminal charge. However, at the end of fourteen days, both parties will present their cases in front of a judge who will determine whether or not there is a need for a long-term protection order. If a protective order is granted, it is possible that criminal charges could follow.
