Civil Protection Orders
A petition for a Domestic Violence or Stalking Civil Protection Order may be filed with the Clerk of Courts. The court will hold an emergency ex-parte hearing, if requested, on the same day if the petition is filed before 4:00 p.m. The petitioner may want to contact a victim advocate at Behavioral Connections to discuss this matter prior to filing the petition.
