Filing a restraining order FAQ

How do I file a restraining order?

There are different types of restraining orders (domestic violence, civil harassment, workplace violence, etc.), and so you need to read about the particular type you want. The Restraining and Protective Order page in the Self-Help section of this website will help you.

For many types of restraining orders, the counter staff at the Restraining Order Help Center in the downtown Family Justice Center Courthouse will be able to help you in person.

You can also read the Self-Help Center flyer, Do You Need to File a Restraining Order?
