Johnson v. Miller

Injunction was properly ordered where evidence provided adequate foundation that husband might engage in domestic abuse due to long history of past violence and violent conduct. Stepdaughter had legal interest in former marital residence, conveyed by a lease and husband was properly subject to restraining order.

Switzer v. Switzer

Circuit court erred by not extending domestic abuse injunction when it was originally granted for less than 4 years when the petitioner states the extension is necessary to protect him or her, even if the injunction has expired. Trial court could not make the four-year injunction conditional on wife filing a divorce action.
