How much does it cost to get an order of protection? Do I need a lawyer?

It does not cost anything to file for an order of protection.1  

Many orders of protection cases are handled without a lawyer however it can often be helpful to have one represent you in court.  If you believe that the other side will have a lawyer, however, or if there are complicated issues to be raised in your case, it may be especially important to have a lawyer. 

If you want a lawyer for the hearing, call one as early as possible. For a list of legal organizations, go to our GU Finding a Lawyer page. 

1 M.R. 2.1.2(C); 19 Guam Code § 14104
