Types Of Protective Orders

Under Virginia law, there are three types of protective orders available. These are legal documents granted by a court in order to protect a person from unwanted contact from another party. The three types of orders include:

  • Emergency protective order, valid for only a few days
  • Preliminary protective order, valid for 15 days or until a scheduled hearing
  • Protective order, valid for up to two years
