An Order may also restrict a person from communicating with the protected person by telephone, email, or text message.

A Misconduct Restraining Order can be made by the Court in circumstances where a Family Violence Restraining Order or a Violence Restraining Order may not be applicable, however, the Court considers that the person should be restrained as they may be likely to act in an intimidating and offensive manner or cause property damage.
