You can get protection from abuse, or unwanted attention that's upsetting, threatening or frightening.
Legal protection from domestic abuse is usually made by a court through non-molestation orders and occupation orders. But these orders can only be used against someone you're personally connected to, such as a relative, spouse, partner or someone you've been in a significant relationship with.
Instead, you could get a harassment order, which can be used against someone who isn't personally connected to you, such as a:
- work colleague
- one-night stand
If you are in immediate danger, call 999 and ask for the police. See I’m in danger now.
