Do I have to register my order of protection in South Carolina in order to get it enforced?

No. South Carolina state law gives full protection to an out-of-state protection order even if it contains protections that could not be included in a South Carolina order of protection as long as you can show the officer a copy of the order and can truthfully tell the officer that you believe the order is still in effect.1 It does not have to be entered into the state or federal registry in order to be enforced by a South Carolina police officer, but the officer does need to believe that it is a valid (real) order.
