What is an individual at risk restraining order?

If you are what the law considers an “individual at risk,” this restraining order can protect you from a person who:

  • interfered with or, based on prior behavior, may interfere with the delivery of protective services, protective placement, delivery of services, or an investigation and that interference, if continued, would make it difficult to determine whether abuse has occurred, will occur, or is occurring;
  • has abused, financial exploited, neglected, harassed, or stalked you; or
  • mistreated your animal.1
