Can a minor file for a sexual abuse protective order?

Yes, as long as you are age 12 or older. You can file for a sexual abuse protective order without the appointment of a guardian ad litem if you are at least 12 years old. Your parent or lawful guardian can also file on your behalf if you are under the age of 18.*
