Q: I’m 18 and I’m pretty sure I can file a restraining order on someone without a guardian (correct me if I’m wrong) but I’ve been getting harassed by an ex and he always bothers me I just want it to end, I don’t want to press charges I just want him away from me at all times.
A: Yes – you can file a petition for an order of protection in Family Court. Doing so would not entail “pressing [criminal] charges on him,” as same usually refers to a criminal court action. Call a Westchester Domestic Violence attorney for more info.
