Harassment Prevention Order


Years of Legal Counsel on Managing Harassment Prevention Orders

Being harassed, stalked, or sexually assaulted is not only scary but can also be severely traumatizing. Similarly, being falsely accused of harassment can be harmful as well, jeopardizing careers and relationships with others.

Massachusetts’s “harassment prevention law,” commonly called Chapter 258E, was created to protect all people in the state from harassment, stalking, and sexual assault. The harassment prevention law can be used to protect you against anyone. The law allows you to seek a court order protecting you from harassment if you feel threatened or are a victim of a crime. This order goes by many names, like:

  • A 258E order
  • A harassment prevention order
  • A restraining order
  • A protective order
