When is it appropriate to get a restraining order?

When family conflicts get out of hand, you may find that you want to stay away from your ex-partner for a certain amount of time. If you have communicated this to them but they have continued to call you, visit your home or even threaten you, you should consider taking action to protect yourself.

Everyone has the right to a certain amount of privacy, and they also have the right to be free from harassment and abuse. If your sense of wellbeing has been affected by actions that your ex-partner or another person is taking, you may be able to get a restraining order so that you can be free from this toxic behavior. The following are some situations where it is appropriate to get a restraining order.

When physical violence occurs

Physical violence, no matter how minor you believe it to be, should never be tolerated in any relationship. There is never an excuse for any form of violence, therefore if someone becomes violent toward you, you should immediately consider gaining a restraining order.

When you are being abused psychologically

Abuse is not always physical. Some abuse occurs through threats, bullying behavior, intimidation, and control. If a person is making you feel fearful, or if they are in constant contact with you to the point that you feel you cannot escape, you should consider gaining a restraining order so that you can get relief from this.

Restraining orders are a useful tool for those who are trying to get away from a toxic relationship. They can help ensure safety, as well as give you peace of mind.
