Sexual Assault Restraining Orders
A sexual assault restraining order (also known as a sexual assault protective order) is a civil order that provides protection to victims of sexual assault and other forms of non-consensual sexual contact. However, if the person who sexually assaulted you is a current or former intimate partner, you would file for a domestic violence restraining order (not a sexual assault restraining order).
