Massachusetts is home to thousands of immigrants coming from many different countries of the world. Realizing this, Massachusetts courts have made available (at least since May, 2015) some important forms, such as paperwork related to Restraining Order (otherwise known as Abuse Prevention Order) available in eight different languages: Spanish, Arabic, Vietnamese, Chinese, Haitian Creole, Portuguese, Russian and Khmer.
A Complaint for Protection from Abuse is asking the court to prohibit a person harassing or abusing you to come near you and to contact you in any way: by telephone, by e-mail or otherwise. When you are being threatened, harassed or subject to violence and your first language is not English, the last thing you need to worry about is how to fill out a form to seek relief from abuse from the court. So it is very helpful that one of the most vital court forms is available in multiple languages.
