Am I eligible for a stalking protection order?

You can file for a stalking protection order if you or a member of your immediate family or household are a victim of stalking. You are eligible for a stalking protection order to protect yourself if:

  • you are the victim of stalking; or
  • a member of your immediate family or household is a victim of stalking.1

For example, if your sister is being stalked, you may be able to get a stalking protection order against the person stalking her for your own protection.

You can also file on behalf of the following people if they are victims of stalking:

  • your child who is under the age of 18; or
  • a dependent if you are the dependent person’s guardian.2
