What can I do if I am a victim of domestic violence?

Dial 9-1-1 immediately if the abuser is still there. Victims of abuse can get temporary Protection Orders requiring the abuser to stay away and have no contact with their victim. These Protection Orders can be obtained from the Family Court at One South Sierra Street in Reno. Once a Protection Order is issued, keep a copy handy at all times. Do not allow violations of the Order by inviting the abuser to visit “on good behavior”. All violations of a Protection Order should be reported to the police immediately.
