Alaska Protective Orders
Protective orders, also known as restraining orders, protect victims of domestic violence by limiting the communication an abuser can have with them.
In Alaska, there are three types of protective orders. Following are the names of these orders and the length they last.
- Emergency protective orders: 72 hours
- Ex parte protective orders: 20 days
- Long-term protective orders: One year
