How can a disorderly conduct restraining order help me?
An ex parte temporary order and a final disorderly conduct order can order the person who is harassing you or abusing you to:
- stop the disorderly conduct; and
- have no contact with you.1
These orders do not offer other kinds of relief that a domestic violence protection order can give you, such as temporary custody, the surrender of firearms, or exclusion of the abuser from the home.
