Do I have to register my protection order in Tennessee in order to get it enforced?

No. As long as the protection order is still in effect, the courts of Tennessee will enforce the protection order as though it was issued in Tennessee.1

In addition, Tennessee law enforcement officers are supposed to enforce an out of state order (whether or not it is registered) as long as the order looks real to the officer. This is known as a “presumption of validity.”2
