What protections can I get in a sexual abuse restraining order?

A sexual abuse restraining order can order the abuser to:

  • stop sexually abusing you; and
  • stay away from your home, school, and work.1

The judge may also be able to order additional protections in your order depending on your situation and may even order the abuser to pay your attorney’s fees and court costs.2 Be sure to include any specific requests in your petition.2

In addition, your order should include information about whether the abuser should be arrested for violating the terms of the order.3
