Are You Ready For The PSVI Act?
The Protection of Victims of Sexual Violence or Intimidation (PSVI) Act takes effect on July 1, 2015. The PSVI Act provides victims of sexual assault or intimidation who do not share a “family or household” relationship with the defendant a civil remedy that prohibits the offender from having contact with the victim regardless of whether the victim seeks criminal prosecution. Implementation of the PSVI Act directly impacts domestic violence and sexual assault programs, courts, and court-related agencies involved in the civil legal process.
