Restraining Orders For Online/Offline Stalking and Abuse
When most people picture a “stalker” they think of someone surreptitiously following someone else from location to location.
They might appear at a workplace, at a home, or in any other public place the victim spends their time. Under the law, stalking is simply defined as the unwanted pursuit of another person…and that pursuit does not have to be limited to real-life encounters.
Online stalking can and does happen regularly. You can easily be stalked without ever coming face to face with your stalker. If someone is following you on social media, leaving unwanted comments, sending you private emails and following you from site to site posting abusive and or unwanted comments and notices, then you are being cyberstalked.
Restraining Orders To Address Abuse
Victims of abuse can obtain a protection order/restraining order to ensure their abuser cannot come near them. These court orders are signed by a judge and instruct abusers not to have contact with the victim and to stop any abusive behavior or activity toward the victim. If the abuser violates any of the instructions of the order, they can face serious repercussions.

We Will Take Legal Action And File a Restraining Order
We Rise Legal has helped dozens of clients to obtain restraining orders for both offline and online stalking. If you are being stalked offline, a restraining order will bar the stalker from contacting or approaching you. If you are a victim of abuse offline or online, a restraining order will bar your abuser from contacting or approaching you. They often order the stalker/abuser to stay away from you at a specific distance (like 50 or 100 yards). If you are being stalked online, it can be more difficult to obtain a court order that says your stalker may not follow you or contact you online, but it is possible. We have helped many clients obtain rulings that say they may not be contacted anymore by their online stalker.
