WomensLaw regrets that these resources have not been updated recently.  However, please note that the legal content on the Know the Laws section is updated annually and the rest of the website is also updated regularly.

Before a protection order can take effect, it must be served upon the abuser. In most states, protection orders are served by the sheriff department.  You can contact the clerk of the court in the court that issued your order to find out the procedure for service if you are unsure. For a list of Tennessee courts, check the TN Courthouse Locations page on our site.  Listed below are telephone numbers and addresses for sheriff departments in Tennessee. You may be able to find more up-to-date listings for sheriff departments on the Tennessee Sheriffs Association website.
