Workshop: Restraining orders have an important role to play in preventing domestic violence. Of the 2-3 million temporary restraining orders issued each year in the United States, however, half do not include even an allegation of violence, referring instead to vague offenses such as harassment. Many of these orders are issued in the context of a divorce action in which the custody of children is in question, giving the person requesting and obtaining the order a number of distinct advantages. Family Court, where restraining orders and subsequent custody orders are made, is a civil court and consequently the usual protections of due process are seriously curtailed. This presentation will examine the abuses of restraining orders and will address the ways we can work within a flawed system and some ways in which the system might be changed.
