What is a civil no contact order?
Similar to a domestic violence order of protection, a civil no contact order is a court order that can protect you and your family or household members from an abuser if you are the victim of non-consensual sexual conduct or non-consensual sexual penetration. Unlike the domestic violence order of protection, you do not need to have a specific relationship with the abuser to get a civil no contact order.*
