Step 1: Go to the Family Division of the Territorial Court.

Go to the Family Division of the Territorial Court to request a temporary restraining order, and/or a permanent restraining order.  If you live on St. John, you must go to court in St. Thomas to request a temporary restraining order or permanent restraining order.  To find contact information for the courthouse in your area, click on VI Courthouse Locations.  During business hours, go to the clerk’s office. Tell the clerk that you want to file for a permanent restraining order, and the clerk (or other court staff) can help you fill out the necessary forms to file.2  If you are in immediate danger and need emergency protection, tell the clerk you also need an ex parte/temporary restraining order.
