Can I get a restraining order against a couple?
In a sense, no (but you can still obtain a restraining order against both people).
A “couple” would not be something against which you can get restraining or protective order, but if both members of a couple individually commit the acts that would entitle you to restraining order, protective order, or stalking injunction, then you would apply for the order against each member of the couple because you want and need protection from both of them.
Let’s say that one spouse of a married couple is assaulting you, or attempting to assault you, or threatening to assault you. And let’s say that there is no question that the other spouse in the couple has done nothing wrong (isn’t even aware of what his/her spouse is doing wrong). In that scenario, there would be no basis for seeking a restraining order against both people. But if both of them are causing, attempting, or threatening harm, then you could certainly seek a restraining or protective order or stalking injunction against them both.
