Who can file for a stalking protection order? Can a minor file?

If you are an adult and are a victim of stalking, you can apply for a stalking protection order.  You must include your name, the name or a description of the abuser, the dates of the act(s), and a description of the act(s) that you claim constitute stalking.*  If you are a minor and are a victim of stalking, a parent, guardian, or adult residing with you can file on your behalf.**
