APPEALS FROM PROTECTIVE ORDERS IN LOUISVILLE
Protective orders are restraining orders that are intended to prevent domestic violence. There are two types of final protective orders: a domestic violence order (DVO) and an interpersonal protective order (IPO). A DVO applies to a family member or member of an unmarried couple. An IPO applies to a dating or romantic relationship that does not rise to level of a domestic or married relationship. Serious consequences result from either the entry or the denial of a protective order. The improper denial of a protective order may threaten your personal safety. On the other hand, the improper entry of a protective order may result in the modification of child custody and the relinquishment of other important constitutional rights. Although a DVO or an IPO is not a criminal offense, it is a public record that may negatively impact your employment and impair other opportunities in the community. If you did not receive a favorable outcome at the conclusion of a DVO or IPO proceeding, then you have the right to appeal.
