Stalking is a serious and terrifying matter. Boundaries are an important part of social norms, and our sense of mental health and wellness often depends on respect for these boundaries. In the course of daily life, all of us have likely run into someone who violates our communicated or socially-standardized boundaries. These boundary violations can make us feel disrespected, annoyed, or unsafe. Stalking is an extreme violation of these boundaries, and it is a scary and dangerous experience to be stalked. Often, people who are willing to violate boundaries enough to follow, harass, or invade your privacy are also willing to escalate into physical assault, verbal battery, or other threatening behavior. It is important to take appropriate legal steps to protect yourself if you feel you are being stalked.

Filling Out Forms for a Stalking No Contact Order

Obtaining an Emergency Stalking No Contact Order is similar to obtaining an Emergency Order of Protection. You must fill out a petition for a Stalking No Contact Order. In the petition, you must detail your experience of being stalked as thoroughly as possible.

Detailing Your Petition

Detail as clearly as possible what the stalker has said and done as well as the dates and times that the stalker has either made contact with you or has attempted to make contact with you. If you do not remember exactly, provide your best guess. Be sure to mention where the stalking occurred and if you were harmed in the course of the stalking in any way.

As stated above, more detail is better for your case, especially if you are applying for an Emergency Stalking No Contact Order. Because providing details on your stalking can be a harrowing and traumatic experience, it can be helpful to have professional legal help throughout the entire process.

Do I Have to Attend Court?

Emergency Stalking No Contact Orders can be granted without a hearing, but since Emergency Orders only last for up to three weeks, you will have to attend a hearing to obtain a longer-term, plenary order. Your stalker will not need advance notice of the petition process for an Emergency Order. They will be served the completed order by the sheriff. For the plenary order, the stalker will have the choice to attend a hearing. If the stalker misses the court date, the plenary order may still be granted.
