Basic Restraining Order Training

Thursday, November 14, 2019 8:00 am - 4:30 pm Sheraton Madison Hotel | 706 John Nolan Drive, Madison, WI 53703

This training is designed for any advocate who will assist individuals to obtain restraining orders. Participants will learn how to help a victim assess whether they want a restraining order and explain the process to obtain one, determine eligibility for different types of orders, and assist a victim to complete a petition and to prepare for court. Recent legislation related to restraining orders will be covered. Cyrus Behroozi (End Abuse Justice Systems Program Director) & Jeni Haddad (Family Support Center Domestic Violence Program Director).
