Protect Yourself from Domestic Violence

The state of Nevada offers orders of protection against domestic violence. They function as restraining orders and are meant to protect you and your loved ones from the abuser. Orders of Protection can also help you win temporary or final custody of your children.

  • There are three protective orders:
  • Emergency Protective Order: If your abuser is arrested, you can call your local courthouse to have a week-long order of protection put in place. You must call within 12 hours of the abuser’s arrest. Once the emergency protective order is granted, a court hearing is scheduled.
  • Extended Order of Protection: This order of protection must be applied for at a district or justice of the peace court. The petition will require you to detail the most recent incidents of domestic violence as specifically as you can. A hearing will then be held to give you and the abuser an opportunity to present your sides before a judge. After the hearing, a judge will determine whether or not the extended order of protection should be granted.
  • Temporary Order of Protection: When you file for an extended order of protection, you have the option to petition for a temporary order of protection as well. A temporary order of protection is put in place if the judge believes you are in danger of being harmed. The temporary order will offer you immediate protection for up to 30 days until a hearing can be scheduled.
