Defense Against Domestic Violence 50B Restraining Orders

If you have been accused of domestic violence, your accuser has the power to seek a 50B restraining order without your knowledge.

What Is A 50B Restraining Order?

In North Carolina, protective orders, known as 50B protective orders, are tools associated with domestic assault or domestic violence charges.

The restraining order is temporary (valid for 10 days) and is issued by a judge after a complaint is filed by an individual who feels he or she is under imminent threat of physical abuse. The accused will be provided a hearing during this 10-day window.
