Default Order a Domestic Violence abuser to leave town?

Can a court legally order a person to leave the city?
We live in a town of about 40,000 people and I don't feel that any order will protect me unless my ex boyfriend is required to be OUT of the town.
Otherwise I will surely be running into him constantly.

I wish to inform you that court may order a no contact order under which other party may not contact you or come near you. While moving out of city may be difficult to be included in a no contact order but restriction may be placed in area where you live. If other party violates court order then action may be taken against other party.

I seriously doubt that any judge will order your ex to leave town.

Then it's up to your ex to run away from you as soon as he sees you and avoid making any contact.

A Court can order restrictions or injunctions , but could not order a person to leave the city. It is good to seek opinion from a lawyer regarding the present order to understand what the court intends.

No, they cannot order them to leave town. They can only issue and enforce the order within its terms.
