2015 General Assembly: Interpersonal Protective Orders (HB 8)

 

The 2015 General Assembly passed legislation to modestly update the state's domestic violence protective order statute pursuant to KRS Chapter 403 (e.g., by adding stalking to the definition of domestic violence), and to expand those who are eligible for protective orders to include victims of dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking.  To accomplish the latter, "interpersonal protective orders" were created for the first time in Kentucky law under the new chapter of KRS 456.

Below are links to provide background information on the 2015 legislation, a cross walk summarizing the legislation by section, and two brochures offering guidelines for schools on the use of interpersonal protective orders.
