What is a Behavior Order vs. a Protective Order?

A Behavior Order is an order from the judge that specifies that if a certain behavior does or does not occur then there will be a punishment. Typical examples are that parents are not to physically discipline a child, be around second hand smoke, be around a dangerous animal, etc. This usually is during litigation and is enforced by the Court.

Protective Orders are often issued outside of litigation and are enforced by the Police. For example, if one violated a Protective Order then the police might take that person to jail. If one violated a behavior order then the other parent would take that person back to court and tell the judge.
