If I am not eligible for an order for protection, is there another type of restraining order I can get?
If you are not eligible for an order for protection, you may be able to get a harassment restraining order (HRO). Anyone who is a victim of harassment can file for a harassment restraining order. It does not matter what relationship you have with the harasser. To read more, go to our Harassment Restraining Orders page.
