A restraining order, also known as a “protective order” is an order of the court to further protect a victim from being physically or sexually abused, threatened, stalked, or harassed. It is also an order to keep the abuser away from the scene of violence, such as home or place of work. The person obtaining the restraining order is called the “protected person” and the person whom the restraining order is against is called the “restrained person.”
