If passed, AB 1243 will restrict the hearing of protective orders to either the probate or family courts. AB 1243 would prohibit the plaintiff’s attorney from seeking a protective order in civil, thus creating the procedural necessity of having to get before a probate or family court judge. If the financial abuse case is destined to be heard in civil court, having to go plead for a protective order in any court but the civil is not an efficient approach to justice.
