The West Virginia Family Court Restraining Order Statute – Chap. 51-2A-2a

Burton Hunter, co-author of the “WV Family Law Restraining Order Statute” with fellow WV lawyer and friend, Thomas O’Neill, WV Code 51-2A-2a, reports on the creation, effect, and method associated with obtaining one of these critically important orders. These orders prevent domestic violence because they can be entered before the behavior rises to the level of domestic violence.                      There are no statistics on how many  orders have issued, many thousands, and no way to to know how many lives were improved or saved by this important law.
