On what grounds can a protective order be issued?

Protective orders, frequently referred to as restraining orders, are court mandates which bar you from carrying a gun, going to a place where you know the protected person will be present, or making threats against the protected person or his or her household members. These orders are typically issued in response to instances of domestic violence or stalking, either on the initiative of the court or on a petition by the protected person. However, a judge will issue a restraining order in any situation where family violence has occurred and is likely to occur in the future.
