There are only two types of protection orders available through the law director's office. The first is a temporary protection order that is filed in conjunction with a criminal complaint for domestic violence or threatening domestic violence. The other is an anti-stalking protection order. Again this is filed in conjunction with certain types of criminal charges such as assault, menacing, etc.
Civil protection orders and civil anti-stalking protection orders are available through the Medina Common Pleas Court. These orders are not related to criminal charges. The law director's office cannot assist in obtaining these orders. It is recommended that those individuals seeking these types of protection orders speak to a private attorney for more information.
Matters related to a possible violation of an order issued by a domestic relations court must be addressed with the court that issued the order. This matter may be heard before the issuing court in a civil contempt of court hearing. It is recommended that you contact your private attorney to discuss this issue in greater detail.
