Will the abuser be notified if I register my protection order?

Some courts in Colorado will notify the abuser if you register your Protection Order. If you fear that your abuser may try to locate you in Colorado, you may wish to consult a local domestic violence advocate to find out whether your county court will notify your abuser.

You can find contact information for local domestic violence organizations in CO on our CO Advocates and Shelters page.
