Universal Citation: NE Code § 28-311.10 (2017)

28-311.10.

Foreign harassment protection order; enforcement.

(1) A valid foreign harassment protection order or order similar to a harassment protection order issued by a court of another state, tribe, or territory shall be accorded full faith and credit by the courts of this state and enforced as if it were issued in this state.

(2) A foreign harassment order issued by a court of another state, tribe, or territory shall be valid if:

(a) The issuing court had jurisdiction over the parties and matter under the law of such state, tribe, or territory;

(b) The respondent was given reasonable notice and an opportunity to be heard sufficient to protect the respondent's right to due process before the order was issued; and

(c) The harassment order from another jurisdiction has not been rendered against both the petitioner and the respondent, unless: (i) The respondent filed a cross or counter petition, complaint, or other written pleading seeking such a harassment order; and (ii) the issuing court made specific findings of harassment against both the petitioner and respondent and determined that each party was entitled to such an order. There is a presumption of the validity of the foreign protection order when the order appears authentic on its face.

(3) A peace officer may rely upon a copy of any putative valid foreign harassment protection order which has been provided to the peace officer by any source.
