WomensLaw is not just for women. We serve and support all survivors, no matter their sex or gender.
Important: Even if courts are closed, you can still file for a protection order and other emergency relief. See our FAQ on Courts and COVID-19.
Legal Information: Delaware
You can find the forms that are needed to file for an order of protection from abuse on the Delaware State Courts website here. You can also find information from Delaware State Courts on the process to file here.
You can find many additional sets of forms for custody, modification of custody, divorce, and much more here.
You will also find court forms in the clerk’s office at the courthouse when you file. See our DE Courthouse Locations page for courthouse contact information.
A local domestic violence organization or legal aid office may also be able to provide you with the forms and help you through the process. To find one near you go to our DE Advocates and Shelters page.
