Know the Laws: Oklahoma
UPDATED October 11, 2016
A protective order is a legal order issued by a state court which requires one person to stop harming another. In Oklahoma, there are several types of orders explained below.
Some restraining orders are issued in criminal court and some are issued in civil court.
A civil order that provides protection from a family member, household member or someone you had a dating relationship with.
A civil court order that is designed to protect you from a stalker who you do or do not have a relationship with.
Your Oklahoma protective order can be enforceable in another state.
If you are planning to move to Oklahoma or are going to be in Oklahoma for any reason, your protection or restraining order may be enforced.
