Options for Victims of Domestic Violence

Call 911
Assault, rape and attempted murder by an intimate partner are crimes … just as if a stranger committed the same crimes! The mandatory arrest law says the police must arrest the perpetrator if violence has occurred. Even if charges have not been filed, a police report can be used as evidence in the future. (see the page  “Arrest of an Abuser”.)

  • A TRO is a court order restricting an abuser’s access to his/her partner, and may include children.
  • Can request temporary custody of children.
  • Can include workplace, school, childcare, etc.
  • Must be renewed before a year from the date originally filed.
  • Hearings are held at the Wallowa County Courthouse.
  • Safe Harbors staff is available to assist in filling out petition for TRO
  • See the page “Temporary Restraining Order” for more information on how to petition for a TRO.
