Q. How do you go about getting a restraining order.


Dear Juneau Resident,

Alaska has three types of restraining orders: an emergency order which is good for 72 hours, an Ex-Parte order which is in effect for 20 days; and a long-term order which generally lasts for a year.

The emergency order was created several years ago for people who needed protection but had no immediate access to a court. A police officer could contact a magistrate and request the emergency order be issued which would give the person time to contact the Court and complete the necessary process to obtain either an Ex Parte order or a long-term order.

You may obtain a restraining order by contacting the Clerk of the Court office and completing the necessary forms. You will have to appear before a judge who will inquire about your request and make a determination if a restraining order is warranted.

If you are a victim of domestic violence, you can contact the AWARE shelter whose advocates will assist you with the process.

In any case the Clerk's Office personnel can answer other specific questions you may have.
