If you are a victim of sexual or domestic violence or believe yourself at risk, there are court orders to help protect you. what is an Order of Protection An order of protection is a court order that is specifically designed to stop violent and harassing behavior and to protect you and your family from the abuser. The abuser may be a boyfriend or girlfriend, or someone you date or dated, a spouse or ex-spouse, family member or caregiver. A sexual or domestic violence victim in Illinois should NEVER ask for a “restraining order” because in Illinois a restraining order” will NOT afford the same remedies or enforcement protections as an Illinois Order of Protection.

In Illinois, same-sex partners, including someone you date, dated, or lived with, are eligible to file as well.
