What are the steps involved with getting a sexual abuse protective order?

The steps to get a sexual abuse protective order are similar to the steps to get a restraining order to prevent abuse, but you may fill out different paperwork.  If you have questions, you can call the clerk of court or talk to a lawyer.  You can find the contact information for local courthouses on the OR Courthouse Locations page and for lawyers on the OR Finding a Lawyer page.
