What is a Domestic Order of Protection?

A domestic order of protection is one tool that can help a victim of domestic violence gain independence and stop the abuser from hurting them or any children involved. An order of protection and condition of bond are two separate remedies. For assistance obtaining a domestic order of protection, please contact A Safe Room/D100 at 847-360-6471. If there is a pending criminal case, please contact the victim specialist assigned to your case to assure you are aware of the status of the case.
