After a temporary order of protection from abuse is granted, a date is set, usually within 10 days for a final order of protection from abuse hearing. At that hearing, the burden is on the victim to prove two elements by a preponderance of the evidence. The first element that must be proven is the underlying criminal offense stated in the temporary order of protection from abuse did in fact occur. The second element is that there is a continuing need for the protection of the victim. If you can demonstrate both of those elements, you may receive a final protection from abuse order from the court.
