Can I get a protective order against a minor?

You may be able to get a protective order against an abuser who is 16 years or older or someone who is under 16 but is legally emancipated or married.1

If both the petitioner and the abuser are under 16 years of age, an adult may file for a child protective order on behalf of a child in juvenile court.
