Can I get an order against a minor?
If you were abused by a minor, you may qualify for an order against him/her if the minor is at least 10 years old. However, you cannot get an order against a minor of any age if the minor is your child (and is unemancipated). Also, an unemanicpated minor child cannot get an order against his/her parent.*
