Do I need an attorney to get an order for protection against sexual assault?

No, you do not need a lawyer to get an order for protection against sexual assault,* but it is often better to have one.  It may be in your interest to hire an attorney, especially if you think the abuser will be represented by one.  You may be able to find an attorney on our NV Finding a Lawyer page.

* N.R.S. § 200.3781(2)(c)
