What is an Order for Antiharassment?
An Antiharassment Order is a special type of restraining order which is available only to victims of harassment. It is a civil order of the court telling the person who harassed you not to bother you again.

The police are notified of your Antiharassment Order. The order is fully enforceable in any county in the state.

An Antiharassment Order can:

  • Restrain the respondent from contacting you

  • Restrain the respondent from keeping you under surveillance

  • Require the respondent to stay a stated distance away from your home or workplace
