What protections can I get in a stalking or sexual assault protective order?
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;
- the offender to stop calling, contacting, or communicating with you (and your household members included in the order) directly or indirectly through a third party;
- 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
- any other relief that the judge thinks is necessary to protect you or a specific household member.1
