Original Program: Family Law Paralegal Webcast Series, October 19, 2018
House Bill 343 went into effect on October 1, 2017 and changed the law on North Carolina Domestic Violence Protective Orders (DVPO’s).
Prior to October 1st, DVPO’s could not be modified or amended, unless the entire DVPO was first set aside and a new order was entered with the modified changes. The intent was to provide absolute protection to victims of domestic violence.
North Carolina General Statute 50B(b2) now allows either party to file a motion to amend or set aside an existing DVPO with good cause. Is this a good or bad change for victims and/or your clients?
This session discusses the limitations of HB 343 and the new challenges and advantages that it presents for victims, clients, their children, and family members.
