If you feel you are being threatened, stalked, harassed and/or physically abused you can have the courts order a restraining order to help protect you from the perpetrator. There are often no fees to getting a court ordered restraining order so securing your safety is achievable no matter what your income or status.
There are 4 restraining orders types that you can ask for:
-A Domestic Violence Restraining Order,
-A Workplace Violence Restraining Order,
-A Civil Harassment Restraining Order, and
-An Elder or Dependent Adult Abuse Restraining Order.
Domestic violence is a serious matter, do not ignore it. In order to protect yourself and family you must take action.
You must understand that even if a restraining order is issued by the courts there is not a 100% guarantee that you will be protected. Only citizens that respect the law will adhere to the protective orders. As an example, a peace officer once told me that locks are intend to keep honest people out. In other words, someone with bad intentions will always find ways to circumvent the system.
