Orders for Protection due to Stalking or a Sex Offense

Under Indiana law, if you are the victim of stalking or a sex offense, you can apply for an order for protection even if the person who committed the stalking or sex offense is not a family or household member.  The person can be an acquaintance, a stranger, a co-worker, a neighbor, or any other relationship to you.  (The forms for this order as the same as the forms for a domestic violence order for protection.)
