Domestic violence is generally defined as physical violence, sexual assault, or behavior that has been or could be enjoined. However, a domestic violence restraining order can also be issued to prevent a party from molesting, stalking, threatening, harassing, or disturbing the peace of the other party. If a person makes multiple repeated calls, sends numerous emails that are disturbing the peace of the other party, or stalks the other party, a restraining order can be issued which will order the abuse to stop unwanted behavior.
