Domestic violence restraining ordersThis type of restraining order is used to stop someone, usually an intimate partner or spouse, from abusing the other person in the home. This abuse can be defined in a few ways: reckless or intentional attempt to cause bodily harm or injury, assault sexually, making a person fear that they will be harmed or injured by the other person, or acting in any behavior that is not welcome to the other party such as molesting, hitting, attacking, threatening, battering, stalking, harassing, telephoning, destruction to personal property, or contacting the other person by any means (mail, phone, etc) when it is disrupting the peace of the other party.
Civil harassment restraining orderThis order is issued when, for no legitimate reason, a person harasses another person in any of these ways: illegal violence, a valid threat of violence, or a knowing and determined course of behavior aimed at another person that gravely annoys, alarms, or harasses that person.
