The Terminator 2: Judgment Day actor was the subject of a three-year restraining order issued by a Los Angeles court which orders him to keep away from Rachael Bella at her home, place of work and vehicle.
He is also banned from contacting her via e-mail or telephone, owning any handguns and must enrol in a one-year batter intervention programme.
Edward has also been told he may have monitored visits with Ethan - his three-year-old son with Rachel - at Family Care Monitoring Services in Van Nuys but must abstain from consuming alcohol or illegal drugs within 12 hours prior to his meetings with the youngster.
The rulings come after Rachael - who filed for divorce from Edward in July 2009 after three years of marriage - told the court in a previous hearing the actor repeatedly drives past her house, once threatened to kill himself and refused to take a drug test when she demanded he take one during their custody dispute.
Furlong has a history of alcohol and substance abuse problems and has had several stints in rehab.
He was arrested twice in 2001 for driving without a license and driving under the influence (DUI) and again in 2004 when he tried to free lobsters from a restaurant in Kentucky, where he was filming Jimmy and Judy.
