FAQ - Domestic Violence and Harassment

Do I have to be an adult to get an Order of Protection?

If the person seeking protection is a minor, then a parent, legal guardian, or the person who has legal custody must request the order. However, the judge may allow a minor to request an order when a parent or guardian is missing or not available, or where the minor is in danger from the parent.
