The judge can add children as protected persons on an Order of Protection, meaning that they will be protected by the order.
- Abuse or cause danger to the children during parenting time
- Use parenting time as an opportunity to abuse or harass you and your family members
- Hide the children or keep them from you
- Act in a way that is not in the best interests of the children
The court may order the abuser to meet the children at a place other than your house or to have supervised visits. The judge will consider restrictions on parenting time only if you ask in your petition.
The judge can also order the abuser to pay temporary child support.
