How can I get a restraining order?
A restraining order is a civil process, where the person seeking the order makes an application to a magistrate to temporarily restrain, or restrict another person from doing something that would otherwise be perfectly legal behavior.

While the obtaining of a restraining order is a private process, there are numerous resources available to people, especially in cases of domestic violence, to make the process straightforward and workable.

While in some cases the police may apply for an emergency protective order for someone, it is a temporary solution only, and the regular process needs to be set into motion as soon as possible.
