Who can get a civil no-contact order for victims of registered sex offenders?
If you are the victim of a sex offense (or certain other non-sexual offenses) that occurred in North Carolina or if you are the victim of a substantially similar crime in another state, you may be eligible for a 50D civil no-contact order if:
- The abuser was convicted of the offense; and
- The criminal offense requires registration on the sex offender registry.1
You may also be able to file on behalf of a minor child or an incompetent adult who is a victim of registerable sex offense.2
