    Once an alleged victim files a complaint or an arrest is made, they may file a petition requesting a protective order or restraining order. When a restraining order has been filed against you, you will not be able to contact or come into close proximity with the alleged victim. This includes written and electronic communication and will prevent you from visiting their residence, even if it was a shared residence. You will not be able to visit their place of employment, school, or any other place where they have personal obligations.
