A stalking order can be ordered by the court in order to protect an individual from stalking. Although stalking orders can be thought of by some individuals as an alternative when a FAPA restraining order is not an option, stalking orders are not easy to obtain, and should not be taken lightly.
ORS 30.866(1) provides that a person may obtain a stalking protective order against another person if:
At the time the request for a temporary stalking order is granted, the court will set a hearing date. The temporary stalking order lasts until the hearing date. At that hearing, the court will decide whether to make the temporary order permanent.
