Requesting a Domestic Violence Protective Order
 
Requesting a DVPO is not a complicated process, but it is an involved one, and attention to detail is an important consideration. To begin, an applicant (Plaintiff) will need the following forms:

Note that some of the forms require a signature. Unless otherwise indicated here, forms should be signed in the presence of the Clerk of Court. The Clerk will then witness the signature and notarize the forms without charge.

NOTE: A Domestic Violence Protective Order is not to be used as a means of obtaining the custody of children and the court tries to avoid this. Custody is usually given only when it serves to protect the child. Custody is generally not given in a temporary order. Any custody that is granted is temporary and must be pursued further in family court.
