Who is eligible for a victim protective order?

To get a victim protective order you must be a victim of one of the crimes listed here, but you do not have to have a specific relationship with the offender.  If the offender is a family or household member, then you cannot file for a victim protective order but could be eligible for a domestic violence protective order.*

If you are the immediate family member of a victim of first-degree murder, you are eligible for a victim protection order against the offender who was charged and convicted of the crime of first-degree murder or the person who was charged and convicted for being an accessory to the crime.**
