Can your roommate get a restraining order against your boyfriend? 9 Answers as of May 29, 2013My roommate wants me to sign to end our lease early, but I don't want to. So today she said she was filing a restraining order against my boyfriend because she doesn't want him to be allowed into the apartment. He has been nothing but nice to her and there is no proof of harassment or danger against her. Will she be able to get a restraining order?

Probably not. She is going to have to prove to a judge that your boyfriend has in some way harassed, intimidated or acted in a way to be threat to her. He will need to be served with a copy of the petition for the restraining order which will contain the grounds for the order and a hearing date. When the petition is received, I strongly suggest that you contact an experienced attorney for a face-to-face consultation and give him/her all of the facts surrounding your case. He/she would then be in a better position to analyze you case and advise you of your options. You can accompany him to court and be a witness to what you indicated in your question.
