A Protection From Abuse (PFA) Order is an important tool for any stalking victim because it allows the police to arrest the stalker, even if the police did not see the stalking behavior. You will need to prove the following two things in order to get a PFA:
- You are either related to the stalker, married or previously married to the stalker, you have a child with the stalker, or you have an intimate relationship with the stalker (either sexual or dating); and
- You were followed or contacted by the stalker for no lawful reason and you fear that the stalker will cause you serious bodily injury.
Once you get a PFA, you can ask the court to order that the stalker have no contact with you at home, work or school, as well as many other protections.
