I completed the paperwork for a Stalking and Harassment Petition. What happens next?
The petition will be reviewed by a judge and a decision will be made as to whether to grant it. The Court will contact you to inform you of the judge`s decision. If the petition is granted, an order is signed by the judge and a court date is set for a hearing on the merits of the petition. The purpose of the hearing is to determine if the order should be extended for a one year period.
