A civil protection, also known as a restraining order, is requested by an individual seeking to prevent contact (the protected party) from another party (the restrained party).  They may be sought by an individual in a domestic relationship, i.e. boyfriend/girlfriend, husband/wife or a non-domestic relationship, i.e. neighbors, work colleagues, parents/children. There are various consequences to the retrained party when a Temporary or Permanent Protection Order is entered.  See http://www.colorado-criminal-law.com/colorado-civil-protection-orders/civil-protection-order-consequences.htm

This article focuses specifically on Civil Protection Orders and their role in a domestic relations case (i.e. divorce or allocation of parental responsibilities).  It’s important to understand the consequences of a civil protection being entered between a couple divorcing reach not only to the couple but also their children.
