Handling of a restraining order in the District Court
In the District Court an application for a restraining order is handled urgently. Like in a criminal case, the matter is handled at a trial, where the account given of the matter is examined and both parties as well as witnesses are heard.
When the District Court issues the order, it always assesses the danger of a crime or harassment case by case. As grounds it uses the circumstances, the person’s own experience of a threat as well as the testimony of possible witnesses.
