CRIME VICTIMS COMPENSATION:
Victims and their families must deal with the emotional, physical and financial aftermath of a crime. The compensation program helps innocent victims and their families when they have no other means of paying for the financial cost of crime. The compensation program is funded by the Division of Victim Services. The money in the Crime Victims Compensation Fund comes from people who break the law.
A victim may apply for compensation for costs related to medical expenses, mental health treatment, burial expenses, loss of support or earnings, catastrophic injury, and the loss of medically necessary devices such as eye glasses or hearing aids. Please contact the Victim Services office for more information on how to apply.
A protection order can order an abuser/stalker/assaulter [respondent] to not abuse/harass a victim. It can also be enforced by law enforcement officers anywhere - under the State statute for violation of a protection order. In addition, a protection order may contain other provisions depending on the type of Protection Order sought. Some examples: ordering possession of shared residence, awarding temporary child custody or temporary support to the domestic violence victim, or ordering parties to obtain counseling. Under Wyoming law, protection orders are issued under three categories: Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Stalking.
