create court forms for restraining orders online



1. Take Screening

Start with an online screening tool to help you decide which restraining 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.

The Lethality Assessment Program (LAP) is a tool used by law enforcement and other professionals, often in the context of domestic violence situations, to assess the risk of lethality in cases involving intimate partner violence. The program typically involves a series of questions designed to evaluate the severity and potential danger of a situation. These questions may cover aspects such as the presence of weapons, history of violence, threats of harm, and other factors that could indicate an increased risk of lethal violence.

The LAP is not a standalone intervention but rather a part of a broader strategy for addressing domestic violence. It helps professionals identify cases that require immediate attention and appropriate interventions, such as safety planning, shelter referrals, or law enforcement intervention.

The LAP has been developed and refined over time by researchers and practitioners in the field of domestic violence to better identify and respond to cases where there is a heightened risk of lethality for victims. It is an important tool in efforts to prevent domestic violence-related fatalities and provide support to those at risk.



Protective Order

DVPOs are issued to protect individuals who are victims of domestic violence, abuse, or harassment by a family or household member. The legal reference for DVPOs in Oklahoma can be found in the Protection from Domestic Abuse Act, specifically in Title 22, Section 60.1 of the Oklahoma Statutes.


Victim Protective Orders (VPO)

VPOs are similar to DVPOs but are issued to victims of stalking, harassment, or assault by someone who is not a family or household member. The legal reference for VPOs can be found in Title 22, Section 60.2 of the Oklahoma Statutes.


Emergency Protective Orders (EPO)

EPOs are temporary orders issued by law enforcement officers or judges to provide immediate protection to victims of domestic violence, stalking, or harassment. These orders are typically issued in emergency situations and are valid for a short period, usually until a hearing can be held for a more permanent protective order. The legal reference for EPOs can be found in Title 22, Section 60.3 of the Oklahoma Statutes.


Permanent Protective Orders

Permanent protective orders are issued by a judge after a hearing to determine if ongoing protection is necessary. These orders can provide long-term protection against domestic violence, stalking, harassment, or other forms of abuse. The legal reference for permanent protective orders can be found in Title 22, Section 60.4 of the Oklahoma Statutes.


Stalking Protective Order

Stalking is when an adult or minor who is at least 13 years old willfully, maliciously, and repeatedly harasses you or follows you, including with a tracking device. (22 O.S. § 60.1(9))
