A civil protection order is designed to stop violence, threats, harassment, stalking, or sexually abusive behavior and to protect you and your family members. You may petition the court for a protection order even if you are not related to the abuser and not in an intimate relationship. If the judge approves your request, the defendant must be served so he or she is aware of the order. The initial order is temporary, however a person can request a hearing in order to make the order permanent. If the accused abuser violates the order, he or she may go to jail. If you have a valid Colorado protection order, other states are required to enforce it to protect the victims. Federal law ensures that each state must enforce out-of-state protection orders in the same way it enforces its own. Colorado aggressively enforces protection orders issued by other states.
