: im 17 and im trying to get a restraining order on my friends mom just her mom and only for 2 years until my friend turns atleast 18 do I need a lawyer for it and if I do what questions will they be asking me in court? my friends mom is very immature she texted my dad out of no where at 3 am saying I need to stay away from her daughter or shes calling the authorities I don't know what her problem is with me but she was harassing me and my father with her texts I want to know what questions they would ask me and what good responses would be. And how high would my chances be that I could actually end up getting it on her?

: you need a parent/guardian to get it for you.

: I think unless you can prove that she may be violent or that she is really a threat to your emotional or physical well being you will not get a restraining order. Restraining orders are generally to protect a victim from further violence, stalking and abuse.

This seems like the kind of situation where you should either ignore her texts, change your number or just tell her to cut it out. Immaturity is not a basis for a restraining order and your chances of getting a restraining order or even being able to sue for harassment seem incredibly low.

Also since your friend is 16, nothing will come from her mother calling the authorities in order to keep you away from her, unless you are actually a 40 year old pervert. Your friend seems to have no problem with her mums behaviour, have you talked it out with her? Please remember that the authorities are NOT to be used in personal grudge matches as they have to protect people who are actually in danger.

If you really must try, then depending on where you live you may or may not be of age. If you are not then your dad can do so. Wikihow, wikipedia and many council websites have more detailed information. Your best bet for the most accurate information for your personal circumstances will be your local councils website.
