Law & Legal Issues

Is it Constitutionally Legal for the courts to order a husband and wife to stay away from one another permanently even if the couple didn't request such an order?

The answer depends on the details of the situation. It could be appropriate if the couple continues to require the intervention by law enforcement officers to settle domestic disputes and then continues to live, and fight, together. They would be wasting community resources and placing the responders in danger of being injured while racing to the premises or while breaking up the fighting individuals.
