DVPOs: What is a ‘Dating Relationship’?

In Family by GWAO

Personal Relationship

We have a number of opinions interpreting the act element but much less guidance on the relationship requirement.

The statute states that personal relationship means that the parties:

(1)        Are current or former spouses;

(2)        Are persons of opposite sex who live together or have lived together;

(3)        Are related as parents and children, including others acting in loco parentis to a minor child, or as grandparents and grandchildren – except no order of protection against a child or grandchild under the age of 16;

(4)        Have a child in common;

(5)        Are current or former household members;

(6)        Are persons of the opposite sex who are or have been in a dating relationship.
