Civil protection orders are available for situations involving domestic or family violence, sexual assault, stalking, harassment, extreme risk, or vulnerable adult situations. RCW 7.105 provides information to help you understand the differences between protection order types and provides other important information.
Through this KC Script Portal, you can also submit documents for the enforcement of a Canadian Domestic Violence Protection Order.
Assistance from an Advocate: Even though you are not required, you can speak with an advocate or with other protection order related community groups. They could offer confidential and services free of charge. These groups can help you assess your level of danger, plan for safety, and assist you with completing the protection order petition and other required documents.
