Pennsylvania's Protection From Sexual Violence and Intimidation Act applies to adults and minors who are victims of sexual violence, harassment, stalking, and intimidation. Effective July 1, 2015, the Act gives victims of sexual violence, harassment, stalking, and intimidation a way to get a court order requiring the abuser to stay away from them. These protection orders apply when the abuser is not a member of the victim's family or household. Victims can petition for an order at the county courthouse or with help from a sexual assault program.
