1. As used in this section, "foreign protective order" means a protective order entered in a state other than Iowa which would be an order or court-approved consent agreement entered under this chapter, a temporary or permanent protective order or order to vacate the homestead under chapter 598, or an order that establishes conditions of release or is a protective order or sentencing order in a criminal prosecution arising from a domestic abuse assault if it had been entered in Iowa.
2. A copy of a foreign protective order authenticated in accordance with the statutes of this state may be filed with the clerk of the district court of the county in which the person in whose favor the order was entered resides. The clerk shall provide copies of the order as required by section 236.5.
3. A foreign protective order so filed has the same effect and shall be enforced in the same manner as a protective order issued in this state.
