A restraining order is intended to protect victims of harassment and domestic violence from further abuse. There are two types of restraining orders: Family Violence Protection Orders provide protection when a family member is harming or harassing you. Stalking Protective Orders are issued when someone unrelated to you is harassing you.
What can I do to protect myself legally if I am being stalked or abused?
You can file for a Protective Order or divorce if you are married to the abuser in a Superior Court.
