Description

Preliminary protective orders; hearing dates. Allows the full hearing resulting from the issuance of a preliminary protective order to be heard on the same hearing or trial date as a related criminal offense if such hearing or trial date has already been set for a date later than 15 days after the issuance of the preliminary protective order. Current law requires that a full hearing be held within 15 days of the issuance of a preliminary protective order in every instance. The bill also requires an extended preliminary protective order to specify that the respondent may at any time file a motion requesting an earlier or later hearing date and that the order shall remain in effect until the hearing. The bill requires a copy of any motion requesting a hearing to dissolve such order or requesting an earlier or later hearing date be served by personal service by the primary law-enforcement agency responsible for service and entry of protective orders. The bill contains technical amendments. Read the Bill »
