Domestic Abuse Restraining Order Requirements in Oregon

It is normal for married as well as unmarried couples to have disagreements from time to time. However, when these disagreements turn violent, a restraining order could be issued. Also known as Family Abuse Prevention Act (FAPA) order, this court order prohibits the accused party from having any contact with the victim as well as the victim’s children. In case the petitioner lives with the alleged abuser, this means that he/she could be ordered to move out of the family home.

While Oregon family courts are dedicated to protecting domestic abuse victims, there are still certain guidelines and requirements that one must meet in order to obtain a restraining order:

  • He/she is married or in an intimate relationship with the alleged abuser
  • He/she could demonstrate that the accused party has abused them within the past 180 days
  • He/she could show that they are in imminent danger of further abuse

A preliminary determination could grant the petitioner a temporary restraining order. In turn, the accused party has the right to a full hearing on the issues. During the hearing, the petitioner must be able to provide sufficient evidence of abuse to retain the restraining order. If the petitioner fails, however, the judge could dismiss the temporary order.
