The purpose of the Act on the Restraining Order is to prevent crimes and to improve the possibilities to interfere with severe harassment. A restraining order means that in order to protect the life, health, freedom or peace of a person, another person may be ordered not to contact him/her. A restraining order may be imposed also when the person protected by the order and the person on whom the restraining order is imposed live in the same household.
