Can I file for a protection from harassment order against a minor?

You may file a complaint for a protection from harassment order against a minor (under 18) if that minor is emancipated or is represented by a parent or guardian.1 When notifying the minor of the court date and serving him/her with the order, you would have to serve both the minor and his/her parent, guardian, or other representative.2 You can ask the clerk if you have to include the parent’s name on the petition or not.
