How can a stalking or sexual assault protective order help me?

A temporary or long term stalking or sexual assault protective order can:

  • Order the offender to stop threatening to commit or committing stalking or sexual assault;
  • Order the offender to stop calling you, contacting you, or communicating with you directly (or indirectly through a third party). This could also apply to a household member if that person is specifically listed on your protective order;
  • Order the offender to stay away from your home, school, workplace, or any other place listed in your order. However, if the offender lives with, goes to school with, or works with you, s/he will have to have been given actual notice of the opportunity to attend the protective order hearing before s/he can be ordered to stay away from your home, school, or workplace; and/or
  • Order other relief that the judge thinks is necessary to protect you or a specific household member.*
