    Answered . I would agree with my colleagues that you should definitely consult with an attorney that has experience with both restraining/stay away orders and also immigration law. my office does handle both types of situations and can help advise you of all your legal rights.

    Answered . You should contact local attorneys to discuss whether you can ask a court to issue an order prohibiting the brother in law from having any contact with you or your daughter.

    The order itself will not keep you or your daughter safe if the brother in law ignores the order. You still need a plan to keep you and your daughter safe.

    However, the order will provide the government a basis to charge the brother in law with criminal law violations if he violates the order. Being convicted may expose the brother in law to deportation from the US.
