Click HERE for information about different types of protective orders. Protective Orders

Your paperwork must be completed and filed with us no later than 11AM to have a hearing the same day. You may submit your paperwork after 11AM, however, the case will not be heard until the following day.

If you need to file a protective order, forms and instructions are available in the Oregon Judicial Department Forms Center. Oregon provides paper forms for you to print, fill out and file in person. Some are also available as online interview based iForms that can be completed and filed electronically.
Here is a guide for using iForms to electronically file a Family Abuse Prevention Act (FAPA) Restraining Order.


We encourage you to contact The Harbor if your situation involves an intimate partner (dating relationship, spouse, or caretaker), sexual violence or stalking (by current or former intimate partner). They have other resources available to help you, and they may be able to help you fill out and file your paperwork.

If you would like us to review the document before you file, please contact the Family Resource Center
