PROTECTIVE ORDERS

Protective Orders

A protective order is a legal document, granted by a judge, to help protect a victim of violence and abuse and harassment. Orders are drafted to meet the needs and desires of the individual victim.  They are enforced by law enforcement and the courts.

There are three kinds of protective orders:

  • Order of Protection for domestic violence victims
  • Civil No Contact Order for sexual assault/abuse victims
  • Stalking No Contact Order for victims not eligible under the other two protective orders

Center staff are located at Peoria, Tazewell, and Woodford County courthouses in order to help victims with the process of seeking a protective order.
