Restraining orders may be brought by anyone to stop someone else from harassing them, threatening violence or committing violence against them. There are five types of Restraining Orders: Domestic Violence Restraining Orders, Civil Harassment Restraining Orders, Elder or Dependent Adult Abuse Restraining Orders, Workplace Violence Restraining Orders and Gun Violence Restraining Orders. Once a Temporary Restraining Order or permanent Restraining Order is granted it has the force of law and a violation of the Restraining Order can cause the offender to be charged criminally.
