Qualifying for a Victim's Protective Order

When it comes to the person you are seeking protection from are you:
  • A victim of Rape?
  • Biological parents of the same child or children?
  • Currently or previously in a dating relationship with them?
  • Divorced from their spouse? (Are they married to your ex?)
  • Divorced from them?
  • Formerly living in the same household as them?
  • Living in the same household as them?
  • Married to them?
  • Related to them by blood?
  • Related to them by marriage?
  • Their child?
  • Their parent?
If one of those is true, you may request a victim's protective order (VPO). If none of those situations apple, to file for a VPO you must have been the victim of harassment or stalking more than once.
