A restraining order is just a piece of paper
IT WILL NOT PROTECT YOU.
IT WILL NOT SAVE YOU.
DO NOT LIE TO THE JUDGE.
THE JUDGE IS THERE TO HELP YOU.
It can be issued against a family member, for example: husband, ex-husband, father of your child, a household member, anyone with whom you live with or used to live with, or against someone you have recently dated.
You do not have to be married to the person to get a restraining order. However, you must know where the person lives or works.
