August 11, 2010 webinar recording
This is a recording of the webinar conducted by Legal Department Director Tess Meuer. It covers all of the changes to restraining orders that will be effective September 1, 2010. Harassment restraining orders will become more parallel to domestic abuse restraining orders. Additional changes discussed include: a uniform procedure for de novo review of a court commissioner’s decision; requirements for the court to follow prior to allowing a change from a domestic abuse order to a harassment order; the inclusion of space on petitions to indicate any other proceedings which prohibit contact between the parties; and a process for maintaining a confidential file for the petitioner’s address.
