Two Types of Protection from Stalking Orders in Kansas

In Kansas, there are only two kinds of protection from stalking orders. An ex parte temporary order is often the first step and can be granted by the court based on the testimony of the alleged victim alone. This temporary order lasts until the full hearing.

In responding to a protection order, the alleged stalker must show that there were not repeated acts, that the actions were not harassment, or that there was a valid reason for the activities in question.

Guiding Clients Through Court Hearings

A full hearing allows both sides to share their story with the court, and the judge will make a final determination on the order. If approved, the judge will issue a final protection from stalking order. This order lasts up to one year. The court can extend the order can under certain circumstances.
