Protective Orders

Project: Safe provides trained advocates who assist with filing protective orders in both Pottawatomie and Lincoln Counties.  A protective order can only be filed in the county where the incident(s) occurred.  For questions, please contact our office.

What is a "Protective Order?"

A protective order is an order of the court on behalf of a victim of domestic abuse, stalking or harassment for the abuser to stop hurting, threatening and harassing the victim.

Who Qualifies?

Protective orders (PO) are available to people who have been physically abused, stalked or threatened with imminent physical harm by a family or household member. This includes spouses, ex-spouses, present spouses of ex-spouses, parent, children, persons related by blood or marriage, people who live together or used to live together, and people who are the biological parents of a child. 

You may also apply for a PO if you have been stalked or harassed by someone who is not a family or household member. Stalking means that a person is willfully, maliciously and repeatedly following you which causes you to feel frightened, intimidated, threatened, harassed or molested. Harassment means that someone is doing something to you or someone in your family that causes you distress. Particular language applies to these cases based on state statute. Contact our office for questions you may have regarding stalking and harassment filings.
