    Answered . Civil restraining orders are much harder to get, unless you feel threatened by him for some specific reason. I think if you can have witnesses showing that he peeked into your window then you have a shot. Call an attorney and discuss the details. Initial consultation is free for most of us on AVVO so it will help you get an idea.

    Answered . Getting a restraining order is a very big deal. It will cause your neighbor considerable hardship. If you merely feel uncomfortable, I would not proceed. Try telling him to leave you alone....
