The filing of criminal charges or a criminal conviction is not necessary to obtain a CPO.However, having a Temporary Protection Order (TPO) does not prevent one from obtaining a CPO.***A CPO can be valid for a period of up to five years from the date of filing.******A violation of a CPO is considered to be a criminal offense.***The Civil Protection Order can include the following conditions: Direct the respondent (abuser) to refrain from abusing family/household members, to include no harassing, threatening, or telephoning the petitioner either directly, or indirectly through a third party; Procedure: If you are interested in obtaining a CPO, you can contact an advocate for assistance or you can go to the Domestic Relations Court, 323 Columbus Avenue, Sandusky, and inform the receptionist that you wish to file a petition for a CPO.With this funding, the Program Director chairs the Domestic Violence Task Force.
The Court will hold a hearing on the same day the petition is filed to determine if an ex-parte order should be granted.An ex-parte order is a protection order that goes into effect before a full hearing.
