Civil Protection Law

In human relationships, most conflict is kept “civil” and people don’t need
a court’s intervention or assistance in getting someone to stop. There are,
however, situations where that line is crossed and for whatever reason,
the police will not get involved or will not make an  arrest followed by
criminal prosecution .  When these situations do not de-escalate, begin to
interfere with other people’s lives and freedom, repeat themselves, or
start becoming a basis for further civil lawsuits, these kinds of “civil”
conflicts become the kind of problem that lawyers sometimes need to get
involved in. If a behavior, that must be  directed at a person for the court’s
to get involved,  involves harassment, domestic violence, stalking,
dysfunctional relationship behaviors, threats, inappropriate sexual
contact, or abuse of a vulnerable adult, the Washington Civil Court System
has a solution for these social problems called  Civil Protection Orders , or
Orders of Protection.
