How long does stalking protection order last?

Stalking protection orders don’t have a specific end date at the time they are issued. If the judge issues a permanent order, it remains effective until it the judge decides to end the order.

What will the stalking protection order actually do?

When the judge grants a stalking protection order, the order will specifically say what the stalker (respondent) is not allowed to do. The stalker may be ordered to have no contact with you, to stop stalking you or your family members, etc. It is a crime to violate a stalking protection order.*
