Who is eligible for a stalking no contact order?

You can file a stalking no contact order if you are a victim of stalking.  You can also file on behalf of a child under 18 years old; or an adult victim of stalking who cannot file on his/her own due to age, disability, health, or inaccessibility.*  However, stalking no contact orders are only available for people who 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.
