Domestic Abuse

When an individual faces domestic violence from their partner or another member of the household, they have the right to petition for an order of protection. An order of protection, sometimes also known as a restraining order, is a court order that prohibits an individual from engaging in specific behaviors, including physical abuse, stalking, or contacting another individual, for a specified length of time. These orders can be enforced in several ways, including by the penalties outlined in the Illinois Criminal Code, including fines and jail time.
