In order to distance yourself from your abuser, you'll have to file a protective order. There are three different types of protective orders to choose from:
1. Interpersonal protective orders (IPOs) - This protects victims of dating violence and abuse, such as those experiencing sexual assault and stalking.
2. Emergency protective orders (EPOs) - This provides temporary protection for victims who are in immediate danger until a domestic violence order can be issued.
3. Domestic violence orders (DVOs) - This offers more permanent protection after an EPO has been filed. DVOs require a hearing, but if they're granted, they protect victims for up to three years and can be reissued an unlimited number of times.
