What types of orders are there? How long do they last?
There are two types of orders for protection against high-risk behavior. The judge can issue an emergency order with or without the respondent having notice of the emergency hearing or being present for the hearing.1 The judge can issue an extended order after the respondent receives notice and has an opportunity to participate in a hearing.
