Who Can Be a Victim?

Domestic abuse can occur between:

  • Spouses
  • Ex-spouses
  • Roommates
  • Dating couples
  • Live-in partners
  • Unwed parents

Classifications & Consequences of Domestic Violence in Iowa

There are two types of protective orders. A criminal no-contact order is part of the domestic abuse criminal case. A civil protective order is the other type of protective order. If you are a victim of domestic abuse, you may be able to get a civil protective order. Just go to the clerk of court and request the form for protective orders. Give the form back to the clerk after filling it out. The clerk can let you know what the next step will be. Either you will see a judge, or the clerk will give your form to a judge. The need for a protective order is considered an emergency by the court. The temporary order granted by the judge will be in effect until you can have a hearing. Generally, the hearing takes place anywhere from 10 to 15 days after getting the temporary order.
