Protective orders; custody and visitation; access to child. Requires a court, when entering an order on behalf of another petitioner, to independently determine whether such order should prohibit contacts between a child and the person subject to a protective order, who is the parent or other custodian of the child. The court shall determine whether prohibiting such contacts in the protective order is necessary to protect the health and safety of the child and that there are no less drastic alternatives available. If the court determines that such contacts should not be prohibited, the court shall include in the protective order how such contacts will be maintained without violating the terms of the order.
