Amends the Civil No Contact Order Act. Removes the definition of "abuse". Defines "stay away". Provides that the court shall provide, through the office of the clerk of the court, simplified forms for filing a petition (instead of simplified forms and clerical assistance to help with the writing and filing of a petition). Provides that the court may appoint counsel to represent the petitioner if the respondent is represented by counsel. Changes what a civil no contact order may contain. Provides that an emergency civil no contact order shall be issued by the court if it appears from the contents of the petition and the examination of the petitioner that the averments are sufficient to indicate nonconsensual sexual penetration by the respondent and to support the granting of relief under the issuance of the civil no contact order. Removes from the requirements that must be stated in the civil no contact order the name of each person (other than the victim) protected by the order and that the person is protected by the Act. Provides that, for emergency civil no contact orders, the order must state that the respondent may petition the court to reopen the order if he or she did not receive actual prior notice of the hearing and if the respondent alleges that he or she had a meritorious defense to the order or that the order or its remedy is not authorized by the Act. Makes other changes.
