New 209A Forms in Massachusetts

Massachusetts General Law 209A is commonly referred to as an Abuse Prevention Order, Restraining Order, or Domestic Violence Protective Order.  In September 2011, the Massachusetts Trial Courts released a 238 page document that provides guidelines to Abuse Prevention Orders.

The new 209A forms go into effect on January 17, 2012.  You can access the new forms electronically at this page.  While the link will take you to the Mass Legal Help website, the links per form will take you directly to the forms on the Massachusetts Trial Court websites.

Mass Legal Help also offers explanations on to how to be physically and financially safe.  Read more about the changes to the guidelines and practical applications of the law at this website.
