Technically, standard Orders of Protection are only for situations involving blood relatives, family, or household scenarios. So, how can legal protection be provided when a person believes they are being harassed by others, such as co-workers, neighbors, or even strangers?
This is where No Stalking Orders (commonly known as Restraining Orders) can be obtained by the person who believes they are being stalked or harassed. As the petitioner is required to prove that abuse or intimidation is taking place, it pays to take legal advice. Our team at Granholm & Gynac, based in Joliet, Illinois, are experienced in handling such situations. We can be contacted by calling 815-566-8611.
