What is a protective order / domestic violence order?

A domestic violence order is a paper that is signed by a judge and tells the abuser to stop the abuse or face serious legal consequences. In Kentucky, an immediate ex parte temporary order is known as an emergency protective order (EPO) and a final, longer-term order is known as a domestic violence order (DVO).
