Abuse and Prevention


(508) 375-6846 or (508) 375-6726

Abuse Prevention Orders are heard on an emergency basis as needed.  The  Court is open from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm for walk-ins.  There are numerous papers that are filled out for Abuse Prevention Complaints.

The Court requests that you come in well before 4 pm to begin the process.

If you wish to file an Abuse Prevention Complaint, and the Court is not open, you should  go to your local  police department.  There is always an emergency Judge on-call, after hours.

Articles – Good topics for articles include anything related to your company – recent changes to operations, the latest company softball game – or the industry you’re in. General business trends (think national and even international) are great article fodder, too.


Mission statements – You can tell a lot about a company by its mission statement. Don’t have one? Now might be a good time to create one and post it here. A good mission statement tells you what drives a company to do what it does.


Company policies – Are there company policies that are particularly important to your business? Perhaps your unlimited paternity/maternity leave policy has endeared you to employees across the company. This is a good place to talk about that.


Executive profiles – A company is only as strong as its executive leadership. This is a good place to show off who’s occupying the corner offices. Write a nice bio about each executive that includes what they do, how long they’ve been at it, and what got them to where they are.
