WHAT IS A PROTECTIVE ORDER
(also referred to as Restraining Orders) ?

Protective Orders in MarylandIn Maryland, a Protective Order (also referred to as a restraining order) is a form of relief granted by either the District or Circuit Court to individuals who have been subject to specific acts enumerated by the State.  The person who files for a Protective Order seeking relief is the “Petitioner” and the person responding is the “Respondent.” Protective Orders (also referred to as a restraining order) often involve domestic violence and abuse or neglect.

HOW DO I OBTAIN A PROTECTIVE ORDER
(also referred to as a restraining order)?

You can obtain a Protective Order 24 hours a day from the District Court, Circuit Court, or Commissioner.  An Interim Protective Order can be issued by a Commissioner ex parte when courts are closed if the Commissioner finds that there are reasonable grounds to believe that the respondent has abused a person eligible for relief.  A Temporary Protective Order is granted by the court for no more than 7 days until a Final Protective Order Hearing.  The standard of proof at a Final Protective Order Hearing is clear and convincing evidence and can be entered for 1 year with the possibility of a 6 month extension.
