A protective order is a no contact order issued by a judge and enforceable by the police. Once the order has been issued, any violation of the order is considered a crime. If you believe the order has been violated, call the police immediately. The violator will be arrested and possibly charged with a crime. Both men and women can obtain civil protection through a restraining order.
If an individual is not related to you or intimately involved with you, you can only get a protective order if that individual is stalking you and 13 years of age or older. Restraining orders are valid for three years.
