Who can get a stalking protective order?

Any victim of stalking or cyberstalking can apply for a protective order against the stalker. Therefore, if you are being stalked by an acquaintance, a co-worker, etc., you may be eligible for a protective order.1

Note: The person does not have to be arrested for stalking or cyberstalking. As long as you can prove that the person committed acts that would come under the criminal definitions of stalking or cyberstalking, you may qualify.
