Under what circumstances can I get a Domestic Violence Restraining Order Issued? Where do I get a Restraining Order?

Commonly issued restraining orders prohibit domestic violence or civil harassment. Restraining orders must be issued by the  District Court. Restraining order forms are available from the District Court located at 400 Lomas NW, 2nd floor Room 274.

Once the court issues the restraining order, two copies should be delivered to the Sheriff's Judicial Operations Division office. One copy will be submitted to the Department's Warrants Division for input into the system. The Sheriff's Department will also attempt service of the second copy for you if you so request.
