The Franklin County Prothonotary's Office is not permitted to issue legal advice or procedures, please consult your attorney for any legal questions.
Pennsylvania has three different civil protection order options that offer victims relief from further harm from their perpetrator. Civil protection orders can be filed whether or not the incident has been reported to the police. If you are considering filing a civil protection order, you may find it helpful to contact you local sexual assault or domestic violence advocacy program, legal services, and/or an attorney to review your options.
