I was not granted an injunction against harassment. What are my options?
You may be able to reapply for an injunction against harassment if a new incident of abuse or harassment occurs or if a new threat of harassment occurs after you are denied the injunction.
If you believe the judge made an error of law, you can talk to lawyer about the possibility of an appeal. Generally, appeals are complicated and you will most likely need the help of a lawyer. Go to our Filing Appeals page for general information on appeals.
