What protections can I get in a protection order against malicious harassment, stalking, and telephone harassment?

Through both an ex parte temporary order and a final order, the judge can require:

  • the abuser not to harass or stalk you;
  • the abuser not to contact you or any protected person in your order; and
  • anything else the judge thinks is necessary, which can include an order that the abuser not come within a certain distance (up to 1,500 feet) of you or a protected person in your order.1

1 I.C. §§ 18-7907(4); 18-7908(1)
