The Protection from Harassment Act (POHA) is an act to protect individuals from harassment and unlawful stalking. Under this act, the Protection Order protects victims of harassment that a) has happened in the past, or b) may happen in the future.

The order doesn’t last forever – it is typically granted for a specific period of time, though the Court may allow exceptions as it thinks fit. Once granted, the victim or person who made the order can also vary, suspend, or cancel the order when they want.
