Oklahoma Protective Orders
Protective orders are available to people who have been physically abused, stalked or threatened with imminent physical harm by a family or household member. This includes spouses, ex-spouses, present spouses of ex-spouses, parents, children, people related by blood or marriage, people who live together or used to live together, and people who are the biological parents of a child.
You may also apply for a protective order if you have been stalked or harassed by someone who is not a family or house member. Stalking means that a person is willfully, maliciously and repeatedly following you which causes you to feel frightened, intimidated, threatened, harassed or molested. Harassment means that someone is doing something to you or someone in your family that causes you distress. This can include following you, sending or leaving things at your home or workplace or calling you.
Attached you will find a VPO checklist as well as the Petition for Emergency Temporary Protective Order. You can print these off and provide to a customer who may need to file for a Protective Order.
