Child Protective Orders

You can request a child protective order on behalf of a child under the age of 18 in juvenile court if you are an adult who has not included that child in your own protective order (if you have one).  The child must be a victim of physical or sexual abuse or must be in immediate danger of experiencing abuse.*  A minor who is 16 years old can file for a domestic violence protective order on his/her own.

You can read the statutes covering child protective orders on our UT Statutes page.  You can also find the forms to file for an order on the Utah Court website.

* UT ST § 78B-7-202(1)
