Civil Protection Orders


Tuesday, July 31, 2012

A Civil Protection Order (CPO) is a court order issued by a judge, lasting up to one year, designed to provide long-term protection from an abuser. The CPO orders your abuser to stop abusing and/or threatening you, to stay away from you, not to contact you in any way, and provides other forms of relief that you need to be safe.
