What protections can I get in a sexual assault protection order?

In an ex parte or final sexual assault protection order, the judge can order the abuser not to:

  • place any limits on you or your freedom;
  • harass, threaten, assault, bother (molest), attack, or otherwise disturb your peace; and
  • contact you in any way.1

Note: Unlike a domestic abuse protection order, a sexual assault protection order cannot give you custody of your children.2
