    Answered . Yes, but you would need to go through the courts to make it happen and would strongly suggest that involve your current family law attorney or hire one asap to protect your rights in these matters. If the "petitioner of the stalking order" is contacting you, you should keep very clear and fact-based records of each of these contacts - date, time, nature of contact, how long it lasted, what happened, etc. so that if it comes up later you are relying on thorough notes rather than an oft times faulty memory.

    You could contact the legal aid services organization or state bar association for referrals to attorney who could help you with these matters.

As someone else mentioned, if you have a lawyer for the divorce piece, see if they can help you with the stalking order. If you don't have a lawyer, now is a great time to get one. Good luck!

    Answered . A stalking order can be dismissed and sometimes (if the parties feel safe) it can be helpful to do so during the custody/divorce process. Your divorce attorney should be able to help you with that, as well as assess whether it could be beneficial to your overarching case.
