The Victim/Witness Advocate supports the victims of crime by providing information of available resources and assistance with necessary paperwork. Though Justice Court issues Orders of Protection, the Victim/witness Advocate can assist with their completion. Orders of Protection can also be completed online at the Montana Law Library or the Attorney General’s Office.
Orders of Protection
Orders of Protection are court orders, signed by a judge, which legally prevent an individual that has harmed another person or entity from contacting or continuing their abusive behavior. Refer to Montana Code Annotated (MCA) 40-15-201 to 40-15-204 for further information. The necessary forms for an Order of Protection can be accessed online at the Montana Law Library or the Montana Attorney General’s Office, as well as by contacting the Anaconda-Deer Lodge County Victim/Witness Advocate.
Montana Coalition Against Domestic & Sexual Violence
