Temporary Order of Protection

Last reviewed: 6/15/2023

Sexual Violence Response (SVR) is a Remote Temporary Order of Protection (TOP) site in New York State, meaning we can facilitate online Orders of Protection for students facing intimate partner, dating, domestic, family, or relationship violence. This helps to reduce the amount of time student survivors spend going to the courthouse to file temporary petitions.

How to get started with a TOP

SVR works in partnership with the New York State Unified Court System to facilitate TOPs.
