New law makes it easier to get protective order
OKLAHOMA CITY – Governor Mary Falling just signed a law that would help victims seeking a protection order.
House Bill 1912 allows a victim to file for a protective order without filing a previous criminal complaint.
The court can now consider the safety of a victim before setting a bond for anyone violating a VPO.
Also, victims will no longer be forced to go to counseling as part of the protective order.
The bill goes into effect Nov. 1.
