Understand Oregon’s domestic violence laws and how they can impact your case. Get legal support from the experienced team at The Law Office of Mike Arnold.

In the state of Oregon, domestic violence laws are a complex mesh of rules and regulations found under various sections of the Oregon Revised Statutes (ORS). Our aim at The Law Office of Mike Arnold is to help you navigate these laws and understand your legal position.

Oregon’s Family Abuse Prevention Act (FAPA)

Under Oregon law, domestic violence is primarily governed by ORS 107.705 to 107.720, known as the Family Abuse Prevention Act (FAPA). These laws protect individuals from abuse by family or household members. FAPA defines abuse as attempting to cause bodily injury, intentionally causing bodily injury, placing another person in fear of imminent bodily injury, or causing another person to engage in sexual relations by force or threat of force. 

Protective Orders in Oregon

A significant component of domestic violence law in Oregon revolves around protective orders, often referred to as restraining orders. These legal orders are designed to protect victims of abuse and can significantly impact both the alleged victim and the accused. There are specific criteria and legal processes to follow when obtaining or responding to
a protective order, which we can help you understand and navigate.
