Civil Protection Orders

On the first page of the petition, you must choose what type of protection you want depending on the type of harm and how the parties know each other.  A $73.00 filing fee is required for Anti-Harassment Protection Orders. To request a waiver of the filing fee based on ability to pay, complete the Motion to Waive Civil Fees and Financial Statement and submit both with the completed Petition.
