How can a sexual abuse protective order help me?
If the judge finds that you are the victim of sexual abuse and that you fear for your physical safety, the order will state that the abuser must:
- not contact you; and
- not do (or attempt to do) any of the following: intimidate, molest, interfere with or menace (physically threaten) you.
At your request, the judge can also order:
- that the abuser not contact your children, family members, or household members;
- that the abuser not enter or attempt to enter your residence or come within an area around your residence;
- that the abuser not intimidate, molest, interfere with, or menace your children and family or household members (or attempt to); and/or
- anything else necessary for your safety and the safety or your children and family or household members.*
