Crime Victims’ Compensation is a division of the Attorney General’s Office. The program reimburses innocent victims of violent crime for some out-of pocket expenses they suffer as a result of these crimes:
A Protective Order can deter violence and provide law enforcement and courts additional authority to intervene in family violence cases but it is not a shield that truly stops the next violent act from occurring. If you are in the process of a divorce, your private attorney must assist you in filing for a Protective Order. The Protective Order can supersede any other court orders currently in place. Law Enforcement can enforce a violation of this Order.
