Section 5101.68 | Petitioning for court order to provide protective services.
(A) If an adult has consented to the provision of protective services but any other person refuses to allow such provision, the county department of human services may petition the court for a temporary restraining order to restrain the person from interfering with the provision of protective services for the adult.
(B) The petition shall state specific facts sufficient to demonstrate the need for protective services, the consent of the adult, and the refusal of some other person to allow the provision of these services.
(C) Notice of the petition shall be given in language reasonably understandable to the person alleged to be interfering with the provision of services;
(D) The court shall hold a hearing on the petition within fourteen days after its filing. If the court finds that the protective services are necessary, that the adult has consented to the provisions of such services, and that the person who is the subject of the petition has prevented such provision, the court shall issue a temporary restraining order to restrain the person from interfering with the provision of protective services to the adult.
