A restraining order can protect you from physical, emotional or financial abuse. It can order
someone not to harass you or destroy your property. A restraining order can also prevent
someone from staying in your home.

There are many different kinds of restraining orders available through the court system. Each
order has different eligibility requirements.

The most common type is a Civil Harassment Restraining Order, if you need protection from
someone who is not a close family member. This restraining order could be used for protection
from neighbors, roommates, or co-workers, for example.

Typically you do not have to pay a fee if you are asking for a restraining order against
someone who was violent, threatened, stalked or scared you. In other cases, a fee may apply
unless you are eligible for a fee waiver based upon your income level or receipt of certain
public assistance.
