Even if you do not qualify for a protective order, the abuser may have committed a crime.  If you call the police, they may arrest him/her for a crime and you may get a protective order through the criminal court.  Remember that even if you do have a protective order, you can still report him/her to the police if you believe s/he committed a crime against you.
