    A restrainer order has to be obtained from your local courthouse. If someone really wants to hurt you, nothing in the world will stop them, especially a piece of paper. However that paper is enough to have them arrested if they come within a specific vicinity. It may be enough to prevent certain people from coming near you or abusing you.
