Hello and thanks so much for choosing this forum to pose your important legal question. I will do my best to give you some honest and accurate guidance.
In Ohio, a Civil Harassment Restraining Order is used in situations other than domestic violence. This Restraining Order is a civil order and is used for stopping harassment and annoyances by neighbors, roommates, and co-workers. These restraining orders are issued to prevent the restrained person from engaging in a number of behaviors, which can be grouped into three general categories:
Annoying, harassing, striking, following, or disturbing the peace of the protected person(s);
Having direct or indirect, personal, telephonic, electronic, or written contact with the protected person(s); or
Coming within 100 yards of the protected person(s) - place of work, residence, or school.
Based on the facts you have related, this would certainly seem to be an appropriate course of action for you to pursue.
