arribaWhat are the steps for getting an individual at risk restraining order?

The steps for getting an individual at risk restraining order are similar to the steps for getting a domestic abuse injunction. The forms will be slightly different, so be sure to ask the clerk for the paperwork to file for an individual at risk restraining order. See our WI Download Court Forms page for the forms that you might need.

arribaCan a final individual at risk restraining order be extended?

Yes.  A judge can extend the order based on your statement that the extension is necessary to protect the individual at risk. The order can only be extended for up to 2 years *  The judge can extend the order in this way without giving prior notice to the respondent.** 

However, there is a possibility that the injunction can be extended for a period of time (from the initial order) that equals 10 years if you can prove there is a substantial risk that the respondent may commit any of these crimes against the individual at risk: first-degree intentional homicidesecond-degree intentional homicidesexual assault or sexual assault of a child (sections (1) or (2)).***
