Which protective order do I need? 

Oregon has five different types of protective orders that have their own requirements and qualifications. Click HERE for more information about the different types of protective orders.

Where do I get the paperwork? Forms and instructions are available at the Forms Center or at the Courthouse.

  • You can apply online if an iForms option is available
  • You can print out your forms and bring them to the courthouse or
  • You can come to the courthouse and we'll give you a paper packet to fill out.

I need help with iForms: Here is a guide for using iForms to electronically file a protective order.

Document Review: Court staff will review your paperwork before you file. We are not attorneys, but we can help make sure the paperwork is complete.

When will I have my hearing? To have a hearing the same day, your paperwork must be finished and filed with the court by 11:00am. If you file your paperwork after 11:00am, the hearing will likely be the next business day. The first hearing is held by video.

Domestic Violence Resource: 

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