In the state of North Carolina, there are two separate laws that address different types of domestic violence cases. Chapter 50B covers cases involving current and former spouses, household members, roommates, relatives or people with a past dating relationship. Chapter 50C covers cases when there is not a relationship between the alleged victim and perpetrator. This law often applies to stalking or harassment cases. In both types of cases, the alleged victim can request a protective or no-contact order.
These orders prove to be problematic for an alleged perpetrator, especially when it comes to child visitation rights, collecting possessions and belongings and filing for a divorce or settling a child custody dispute.
