Peace Order Cases

A Peace Order is a form of legal protection for anyone who is experiencing problems with an individual, including someone in a dating relationship, a neighbor, a stranger, or anyone else.  The peace order enables an individual who wishes to be left alone to ask the Court for an order for the other person to stay away and refrain from any contact.

A Peace Order allows any person who has been subjected to abuse, harassment, stalking, trespass, or malicious destruction of property to seek relief from the court.  Unlike protective orders, the nature of the relationship between the parties is not a factor when petitioning the court for a Peace Order.  If an individual is entitled to relief in a protective order hearing they are not entitled to seek relief under the Peace Order Act.
