Sarah Hyland has been issued a three year restraining order from her ex boyfriend Matthew Prokop, the Los Angeles Superior Court confirms to Us Weekly.

According to TMZ, Hyland's been granted all the protections she requested, and Prokop must stay 100 yards from her, her house, and her dog, as well as not go near her workplace, not own a gun, and not attack or threaten to harm her dog in any way.

As previously reported, the Modern Family actress was issued a temporary restraining order from her boyfriend of five years last month after claiming Prokop was abusive throughout their relationship.

In court documents obtained by Us Weekly, the star claimed that Prokop verbally abused her and once choked her with a "grip so tight that [she] could not breathe or speak." Hyland also claimed that after calling off their relationship, Prokop "relentlessly bombarded [her] with vile, threatening and emotionally disturbing texts and voicemails including his own suicide threats," as well as threatened to burn her house down and harm her dog.

The documents also noted Prokop's stint in rehab and claimed that the facility even suggested Hyland get a restraining order due to his mental state.

Sarah Hyland's lawyer, Lee A. Sherman of CTSC Law, previously said to Us in a statement that the "documents filed speak for themselves."
