What is a harassment protection order? What protections can I get in a harassment protection order?

A harassment protection order is an official court order designed to protect ANY victim of harassment. A judge can issue a harassment protection order to prevent someone from bothering, harassing, threatening, assaulting, molesting or attacking you, trying to control you (or your rights), or communicating with you in any way (i.e. calling, emailing, texting, etc.).1

Note: Unlike a domestic abuse protection order, a harassment protection order cannot give you custody of your children.2
