What protections can I get in a high-risk protection order?

A high-risk protection order (both an ex parte and an extended order) will prohibit the respondent from:

  • having a firearm in his/her possession, custody, or control; and
  • purchasing or getting a firearm.1

The order will also require the respondent to give up (surrender) any firearms. Then, the respondent must immediately give any firearms in his/her possession, custody, or control to:

  • the law enforcement agency specified in the order; or
  • a person that does not live with the respondent who the judge has specified can receive the firearms.2

The respondent is required to show proof that s/he gave up any firearms not later than 72 hours or one business day after giving up the firearms.3
