Who can get a domestic violence protective order?

If you are being abused (as is defined here), you can apply for a protective order against:

  • a spouse or former spouse
  • someone you live(d) with “as a spouse”
  • someone you have a child in common with
  • someone you are related to by blood, adoption, or marriage who you live(d) with
  • a current or former dating partner.1

Any person over 18 or any person under 18 and legally married can file for a protective order. If the person is a minor (under 18) or the person is alleged to be incompetent, a parent, adult household member, or a “next friend” can file for a protective order on his/her behalf.2
