Oregon stalking orders are serious court orders that can have a substantial and permanent impact on the recipient. Oregon law provides a means for individuals to address their safety if they are the victim of stalking. "Stalking" is defined in Oregon law as more than one (repeated) unwanted contact with a person that causes that person or their family to fear for their safety. The person who is alleged to be doing the stalking (the stalker) must previously have received notice that contact is unwelcome. Additionally, the person seeking a protective stalking order must have a fear that is considered "reasonable" under the law, meaning that another person in the same circumstance would objectively be afraid. For example, it would likely not be a reasonable fear if a person indicated that they were in fear because the bank teller smiled at them and said "hello" to them every time they entered their local bank branch.
Courts take stalking orders very seriously because of their long-term impact. Once in place, if the recipient of a valid stalking order violates the terms, the violation is a crime that can result in jail or fines. Stalking orders are different than restraining orders under the Family Abuse Prevention Act (FAPA). Once in place, unless the court decides to add one for some reason, a stalking order will not expire and will remain active permanently. Oregon courts have addressed what is necessary to remove a stalking order once in place, but the process is not entirely clear, and the results can vary dramatically based upon the facts, the jurisdiction, and the person who is being protected.
