A restraining order is a court order that protects you from another person who may be trying to harm you in any way shape or form. If you are feeling threatened by someone, the best thing to do would be to get a court-ordered restraining order as soon as you can to make sure that you are as protected as you can possibly be.
Main Types of Restraining Orders
Before you go ahead and file a restraining order, you must first determine what type of restraining order you plan on filing. There are three basic types of restraining orders that you can ask for: emergency protective order (EPO), temporary restraining order (TRO), or permanent restraining order.
