Civil Harassment Restraining Orders

There is a process available for victims of civil harassment to have the harassment ordered by the court to be stopped. Harassment is unlawful violence or a credible threat of violence or, a course of conduct that would place a reasonable person in fear for his or her safety or the safety of his or her immediate family, and that serves no legitimate purpose. So, if there has been violence, this process is available. If there has been a credible threat of violence, this process is available. A credible threat of violence is a knowing and willful statement or course of conduct that would place a reasonable person in fear for his or her safety or the safety of his or her immediate family, and that serves no legitimate purpose. A course of conduct is a pattern of conduct composed of a series of acts over a period of time, however short, evidencing a continuity of purpose, including following or stalking an individual, making harassing telephone calls to an individual, or sending harassing correspondence to an individual by any means. Constitutionally protected activity is not included within the meaning of a course of conduct. There many ways to obtain assistance through this process.
