How do I apply for a restraining order against stalking or harassment?
To get a restraining order against stalking or harassment, you will have to file in Magistrate's Court in the county where:
- the defendant currently lives; or
- the harassment or stalking occurred; or
- you live but ONLY if the defendant lives out of state or cannot be found.*
Go here to find a Magistrate's Court.
