You will be served with some documents if proceedings are taken against you for a restraining order.
You should read the papers carefully or seek legal advice immediately.
If you are served with an application for a violence restraining order (and no orders have been made), you may consent to the proposed restraint by completing a form…link to the prescribed form.
If a temporary order (called an Interim order) has already been made, you will have an opportunity to oppose the order being made more permanent but you must complete the form called “Objection” (link to form) and return it to the court within 21 days from the date you were served with the papers. If you don’t do that, the court will assume that you do not object and the orders will become final.
In some cases, the court will make an order applying for only 72 hours.
