Civil Restraining Order
A civil harassment restraining order is a court order that helps protect people from violence, stalking, serious harassment, or threats of violence.
You can ask for a civil harassment restraining order if:
- A person has abused (or threatened to abuse), sexually assaulted, stalked, or seriously harassed you, AND
- You are scared or seriously annoyed or harassed.
Although not attorneys and without providing legal advice, the YWCA at Stanford can help students fill out restraining order paperwork and accompany students to court.
