An order of protection is issued by the court to limit the behavior of someone who harms or threatens to harm another person. This is commonly known as a “restraining order.” Orders of protection can be used in domestic violence situations and cases of harassment. An order of protection may direct the offending person not to injure, threaten or harass you, you children or other members of your family. It may include, but is not limited to, directing a person to:

  • stay away from you and your children
  • move out of your home
  • follow custody orders
  • pay child support
  • not have a gun
