What protections can I get in a protection from stalking, sexual assault, or human trafficking order?

A temporary ex parte order or a final order can include any or all of the following protections:

  • order the abuser not to follow, harass, telephone, or make contact with you in any way;
  • order the abuser not to violate your privacy rights;
  • order the abuser not to enter your home or the area immediately around your home;
  • order the abuser not to commit or attempt to commit sexual assault upon you;
  • order the abuser to not recruit, harbor, transport, commit, or attempt to commit human trafficking against you or otherwise communicate with you;
  • order the abuser not to violate your privacy rights; and
  • order any other protections the judge considers necessary.1

Whether a judge orders any or all of the above depends on the facts of your case.
