It is difficult to tell from your question if the Order is an anti-harrassment or some other type of Order. I will answer the question assuming the Order is a temporary anti-harrassment Order and you are preparing for the hearing in which the Court can enter an Order effective for one (1) year or longer.
The anti-harassment statute requires two (2) elements be present in order for the judge to grant the requested Order. The alleged conduct must be considered harassment and second, the alleged conduct must be a continuing course of conduct, not an isolated incident. I suggest you prepare for the hearing with those two elements of the statute in mind.Ask a similar question
