Restraining Orders

Kansas offers two types of civil protection orders:

  1. protection from abuse orders, which provide protection from an intimate partner or household member; and
  2. protection from stalking, sexual assault, or human trafficking orders, which provide protection from a perpetrator regardless of your relationship to that person.

This section includes information about who qualifies for each order and what protections each order can give to you and your children.
