The Ohio Supreme Court is asking for public comment on a new rule that would authorize juvenile courts to issue civil protection orders against juveniles and standardized forms with instructions about how to petition the court for a protection order.
The Court’s announcement says the forms were proposed in response to Am Sub HB 10, which authorized juvenile courts to issue and enforce civil protection orders where the respondent is a minor, regardless of the familial relationship between the parties. That law went into effect on June 17.
Language of the rule and proposed forms is available (Here) from the Court's website.
Comments on the proposed rule and forms should be submitted in writing to: Diana Ramos-Reardon, Domestic Violence Program Manager, Supreme Court of Ohio, 65 S. Front St., Sixth Floor, Columbus, OH 43215, or email@example.com.
