How much does it cost? Do I need a lawyer?

Nothing. There is no cost to file for a restraining order.

You do not need a lawyer to file for a restraining order.  However, you may wish to have a lawyer, especially if the abuser has a lawyer. If you can, contact a lawyer to make sure that your legal rights are protected.  If you cannot afford a lawyer but want one to help you with your case, you can find information on legal assistance on the CT Finding a Lawyer page.
