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).

WomensLaw serves and supports all survivors, no matter their sex or gender.
