In which county can I file for a relief from abuse order?

You can file a petition in the county where you live. If you’ve left home to avoid further abuse, you can file the petition in the county where you lived previously, or in the county where you currently live.1 However, if you are trying to keep your address confidential, filing in the county where you have fled to would likely not be a good idea since it would alert the abuser to the fact that you are living in that county.
