What protections can I get in a stalking protection order?
When the judge grants a stalking protection order, the order will specifically say what the stalker (respondent) is not allowed to do. In a temporary order, the judge may order the stalker to stop doing any of the following to you or your family or household members:
- attempting to contact; and
In a final order (issued after the stalker has an opportunity to appear in court), the judge can:
- order the protections listed above;
- order that the stalker have a mental health evaluation and complete treatment if needed; and
- include language that would prohibit the stalker from having firearms and ammunition.2
