I was not granted 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 try to stay safe.  It might be a good idea to contact one of the domestic violence programs 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 on our AR Advocates and Shelters page.

You may also be able to reapply for an order of protection if a new incident of domestic abuse occurs after you are denied the order.
