Restraining Orders in New Mexico
A restraining order is issued when one member of a household alleges that an act of domestic abuse was committed against them by another household member. A temporary restraining order can be issued for a number of alleged acts:
- Severe emotional stress
- Injury or assault
- Criminal trespass
- Damage to property
- Harm or threat of harm to children
Once a Temporary Order of Protection is issued, a second hearing can be held to determine if the order should become permanent.
Consequences of a Restraining Order
Restraining orders are meant to prevent an abuser from committing further acts of violence against a victim. However, restraining orders are often a tactic used by partners in divorce proceeding and child custody disputes to gain an advantage.
Whether temporary or permanent, a restraining order can affect a parent’s ability to see their children. A restraining order can also violate lease agreements and affect future employment opportunities.
