Stalking No Contact Orders

A stalking no contact order provides protection if you are a victim of stalking and do not qualify for a domestic violence order of protection. If you would qualify for a domestic violence order of protection, that is the petition that you would file instead. An authorized agent of a school, workplace, or place of employment affected by the stalking can also file for a stalking no contact order.
