Before your Protection Order or Restraining Order can take effect, you must have your papers served to the abuser. Contact the clerk of the court in your parish to find out where you should get your papers served. For a list of Louisiana courts, check the Courthouse Locations page on our site.
Usually, you get your papers served at your local Sheriff Department. Listed below are telephone numbers and addresses for Sheriff Departments in Louisiana.
