Yes, a person can seek such an order without asking you to stop certain conduct, That does not mean that person will get the order. Have you been served an order of protection or a restraining order? If so, you need an artorney. If not, just stay away from/ignore that person and do not allow the person to provoke you.
There is no legal requirement that a request to stop contact be made prior to obtaining an order of protection. If someone has filed a petition against you, you should retain an attorney to handle the case, as having such an order against you can seriously affect employment and other important aspects of your life. Most of us provide free consultations. www.galivanlaw.net
