Restraining Orders and Safety

September 30, 2020

You may have heard of a restraining order,  but what is it and how can it help in a survivor’s overall safety plan? Marissa and Fio break down the legal jargon of a restraining order, explain what you can expect in the process, and ways to continue safety planning with or without the restraining order in place.
