A stay order in legal term means the act of temporarily stopping judicial proceeding through the order of a court. In other words, a stay order is an order by the court which suspends a case or a particular proceeding related to the case. This has a temporary effect. The stay order is generally issued to secure rights of a party in a specific situation. The stay can be in a civil or criminal proceeding. The court also, in the light of subsequent events, lifts the stay order issued.
