When a person has been the victim of, or is accused of, domestic violence an Emergency
Protective Order (EPO) is often issued by the Court. An Emergency Protective Order (EPO)
is a temporary order of protection, put into place until a Court can hear both sides of the case.
After the Emergency Protective Order (EPO) is issued, the Court conducts a hearing to
determine if a Domestic Violence Order (DVO) should be issued. A Domestic Violence Order
(DVO) is a long term Order of Protection, which can be in place up to three years. A
Domestic Violence Order (DVO) can be extended at the request of the Petitioner.
