On this webpage, you have the ability to electronically deliver your Domestic Violence paperwork to the court by the internet and save a trip to the courthouse.
Once you submit your completed Domestic Violence forms to the court, they will be delivered to the judge for review. Generally, requests for
restraining orders that are submitted Monday through Friday by 3pm (excluding court holidays) will be reviewed by the judge the same day. If you have submitted
your request after 3pm, on a weekend, or a court holiday, the forms will be delivered to the judge by 10:30am the next day that court is in session. If you
have submitted your request after hours and this is an emergency, please contact law enforcement or call 911. You can ask the law enforcement officer for an
EMERGENCY PROTECTIVE ORDER (“EPO”) to temporarily protect you until the judge reviews your restraining order request.
The judge will grant or deny the temporary restraining order based on the facts you provided in the Domestic Violence Request forms. When you submit your completed
forms, you will be given the option to have the certified copies mailed to a safe address, or you can choose to pick them up at the courthouse.
