Who is eligible for a stalking no contact order?

You can file a stalking no contact order if you are:

  • a victim of stalking;
  • filing on behalf of a child under 18 years old;
  • filing on behalf of an adult victim of stalking who cannot file on his/her own due to age, disability, health, or inaccessibility; or
  • an authorized agent of a place of employment, place of worship, or school.1

Note: Stalking no contact orders are only available for people who do not qualify for a domestic violence order of protection. If you would qualify for a domestic violence order of protection, that is the petition that you would file instead.
