RI Restraining Order Archives

Restraining Orders: No contact means No Contact

Some Rhode Island divorce cases involve either a Family Court restraining order, a protection from abuse order or a "No Contact" order from either the Family Court or the District Court. Often people mistakenly believe that a RI Restraining Order only means that the parties cannot speak to each other. A person believing this can find themselves being arrested or charged with a violation of a court order that may include jail time.

Domestic Abuse: you do not need physical harm says RI Supreme Court

Domestic Abuse can occur in the homes of good people when emotions run high. Some people believe that the Rhode Island Family Court will not issue a RIl Restraining Order unless a person has been struck or been subject to the threat of immediate physically harm. On June 16, 2014, the RI Supreme Court clarified that physical harm or an immediate threat of physical harm is not the only requirement to obtain protection from the court.
