My oldest is special needs, though you can't tell by looking at him.The House Committee on Administration of Criminal Justice passed without objection two bills extending domestic violence protection to same-sex couples and to dating partners.They move to the full House for expected debate next week.These orders may be issued by a civil court, a juvenile court, a family court, or a criminal court. The circumstances under which protection may be granted, the type of protective measures available, the length or duration of the protection and the type of punishment for violation of the order all vary according to law.Although anyone can ask the court to issue an order restraining someone else in order to prevent behavior that is potentially harmful, only those orders issued to prevent domestic abuse, dating violence, stalking or sexual assault are included in the Louisiana Protective Order Registry. Many orders include the opportunity to address property use, custody of children, and financial matters, when relevant to the petitioner’s safety.
