How much does a sexual assault protection order cost?

There are no fees or costs to get a sexual assault protection order. The only way you might possibly be ordered to pay fees or costs is if the judge determines that the statements in the petition were false and that you filed the protection order in “bad faith.”

Note: At the final hearing, a judge may order the abuser to pay the costs related to filing or serving your protection order.1
