Q. What is a temporary order, and how does it work in a stalking order violation court case?


Dear Juneau Resident,

A temporary domestic violence or stalking order is often called an ex-parte order. Ex-parte is latin, the courts love latin, indicating one party involvement. The temporary order is 20 days and involves only one side testifying to the judge. When the requested temporary order is granted, and even when it is not granted, there is a hearing set for the other involved person(s) to testify as to his or her side of the story. At the hearing the judge decides if a long term order is warranted. If both parties don't show up to the hearing the short term order expires at the end of 20 days. If the alleged wrong-doer does not show up than the alleged victim usually gets the short term order turned into a long term order. If any valid court order is violated by the responding party, there is a new charge of violating a domestic violence or stalking order.
