How much does it cost?

You do not have to pay anything to file for a protection from stalking, sexual assault, or human trafficking order.1 If you are granted a final order, the judge may require the defendant to pay the court fees and may also require that s/he pay your attorney fees. However, if the judge decides that your stalking, sexual assault, or human trafficking claim is not valid, s/he may require you to pay the defendant’s attorney fees.2
