I did not get an order of protection. What can I do?

If you are not granted an order of protection, there are still some things you can do to stay safe. It might be a good idea to contact one of the domestic violence resource centers in your area to get help, support, and advice on how to stay safe. They can help you come up with a safety plan and help connect you with the resources you need. You will find a list of Wyoming resources on our WY Places that Help page. You will also find information on safety planning on our Safety Tips page.

You may also be able to reapply for an order of protection if you have new evidence to show the court that domestic abuse did occur, or if a new incident of domestic abuse happens after you are denied the order.
