The clerk of the court will give you the forms you need, inform you about the process of filing for free if applicable, and provide you with access to the notary when one is available to complete the affidavit that is needed for your petition.1 A sexual assault advocate can also help you to fill out your protective order petition.2Note: A sexual assault advocate is someone who has completed specific training and works for a sexual assault or rape crisis center (or similar program).3 To find a sexual assault center and advocates in your area, you can visit the Louisiana Foundation Against Sexual Assault site.
