1. Take Screening

Start with an online screening tool to help you decide which protection order fits your situation the best.


2. Prepare Documents

Instead of looking at the legal forms themselves, you will be guided thorough a series of detailed questionnaires. These will gather the necessary information topic by topic. The questions are in plain and non-legal language. To make this process as simple as possible, our system will then generate the official court forms with your responses printed on them.


3. Consult Advocate (Optional)

You can consult a victim advocate or pro bono (free) lawyer to get guidance on restraining orders.  These resources are paid for typically by government and can help you review your case documents, and talk to you directly to discuss your case and safety planning. 


4. File with the Clerk

You can formally begin the case by filing with your local court.  You will be informed about which specific court you need to file at as its important to go to one that has jurisdiction over your case. You can file by either printing and visiting the clerk's office at the court or in many locations online directly from this website.
