Sexual Violence Protective Orders

In April 2023, Delaware laws created a civil sexual violence protective order that is available to victims of sexual violence who do not qualify for a protection from abuse order because there is no family or dating relationship between the victim and respondent. WomensLaw is in the process of creating a full section on this order - please check back in the Winter of 2023. In the meantime, you can read the laws in our Selected Delaware Statutes section.

WomensLaw serves and supports all survivors, no matter their sex or gender.
