Application for Extreme Risk Protection

LegalAtoms is a website that allows you to prepare all the documents required to file for a Extreme Risk Protection Order (ERPO) free of charge.

LegalAtoms currently assists with the initial filing for various counties in Washington state.

You will be led through a questionnaire in plain non-legal language, with helpful explanations from lawyers and court officials. Once you have completed the questionnaire you can submit your documents via email or download your documents for filing with any other Washington court that has jurisdiction to sign the Extreme Risk Protection Order (ERPO).

Court Forms Created

LegalAtoms guides you through all the topics required to complete your protection order documents and file your case.



After I filled everything out, I was able to print it out and bring it into the courthouse. When I got to the courthouse, they were able to go through and accept it all. I had no problems.
