Depending on your relationship to the alleged abuser, there are two types of civil relief: a protective order and a peace order.
Protective orders are the main vehicle of civil relief for victims of domestic violence. Protective orders are civil orders issued by a judge that orders one person to refrain from committing certain acts against others. You are eligible for a protective order if you and the alleged abuser: A Peace Order is a form of legal protection for anyone who is experiencing problems with an individual, including someone in a dating relationship, a neighbor, a stranger, or anyone else.
