AS 18.66.110. Ex Parte and Emergency Protective Orders.
- (a) A person who is a victim of a crime involving domestic violence may file a petition under AS 18.66.100
(a) and request an ex parte protective order. If the court finds that the petition establishes probable cause that a
crime involving domestic violence has occurred, it is necessary to protect the petitioner from domestic violence, and
if the petitioner has certified to the court in writing the efforts, if any, that have been made to provide notice to
the respondent, the court shall ex parte and without notice to the respondent issue a protective order. An ex parte
protective order may grant the protection provided by AS 18.66.100
(c)(1) - (5), (8) - (12), and (16). An ex parte protective order expires 20 days after it is issued unless dissolved
earlier by the court at the request of either the petitioner or the respondent and after notice and, if requested, a
hearing. If a court issues an ex parte protective order, the court shall have the order delivered to the appropriate
local law enforcement agency for expedited service and for entry into the central registry of protective orders under
- (b) A peace officer, on behalf of and with the consent of a victim of a crime involving domestic violence, may request an
emergency protective order from a judicial officer. The request may be made orally or in writing based upon the sworn
statement of a peace officer, and in person or by telephone. If the court finds probable cause to believe that the
victim is in immediate danger of domestic violence based on an allegation of the recent commission of a crime involving
domestic violence, the court ex parte shall issue an emergency protective order. In an emergency protective order, the
court may grant the protection provided by AS 18.66.100
(c)(1) - (5), (8), (10), (11), and (16). An emergency protective order expires 72 hours after it is issued unless
dissolved earlier by the court at the request of the petitioner.
- (c) A peace officer who obtains an emergency protective order under (b) of this section shall
- (1) place the provisions of an oral order in writing on a form provided by the court and file the written order with the
issuing court by the end of the judicial day after it was issued;
- (2) provide a copy of the order to the petitioner;
- (3) serve a copy of the order on the respondent; and
- (4) comply with the requirements of AS 18.65.540
for ensuring that the order is entered into the central registry of protective orders under AS 18.65.540
- (d) A court may not deny a petition for an ex parte protective order filed under (a) of this section solely because of a
lapse of time between an act of domestic violence and the filing of the petition.
