In some family matters, issues may become particularly heated. In turn, a party’s wish for an order of protection may arise.
In Illinois, three types of orders of protection exist:
- An Emergency Order of Protection is temporary, only lasting from 14-21 days
- A Temporary Order of Protection is short term as well, and may last for up to 30 days
- A Plenary Order of Protection is long term, and may last up to 2 years
