How do I obtain an order of protection?
To obtain an order of protection, contact your local district attorney or prosecutor's office. A restraining or stay-away order is a legal protection that prohibits contact or interference with activities or mobility. Additional information on orders of protection is available in the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) report, Enforcement of Protective Orders, and the Crime: Domestic Violence section of our site.
