Domestic Violence Victim Information
For Victims of Domestic Violence
The Bothell City Attorney's Office Domestic Violence Unit provides assistance and information to victims of domestic violence.
Civil Protection Orders
Domestic violence victims may file a court petition for a civil protection order which does not involve the police or criminal charges.
A civil protection order:
- Prohibits contact of any kind.
- Removes the abuser from a shared residence.
- Grants temporary custody of children and sets visitation schedules.
- Orders the abuser into treatment and/or counseling.
The Bothell Municipal Court does not accept petitions for civil protection orders. Petitions can be filed at King County Superior Court, or another Superior or District courts in Washington.
Advocates will explain the process, help complete forms, and accompany the applicant through the court process.
Victims of crime have a right to know about their offender's custody status. With this service victims can use the telephone or internet to search for information regarding the custody status of their offender and to register to receive telephone and e-mail notification when the offender’s custody status changes.
