Restraining Orders- Know Your Rights

A restraining order can be obtained by victims of harassment. This order can keep the restrained party away from a person's home, work, vehicle and family. Typically, restraining orders require the restrained party to stay 100 yards away. Restraining orders are often valid for three years.

A person seeking a restraining order needs to establish that he or she is a victim of violence, a credible threat of violence, or a course of conduct intended to seriously alarm, annoy, or harasses a person.

Each violation of a restraining order can result in criminal charges.
