Do I need anything special to get my protection order enforced in another state?

In some states, you may need a certified copy of your protection order.  If your copy is not a certified copy, you may request a copy from the clerk in the records department of the courthouse where your protective order was granted.  You may want to call the courthouse to see if there is any cost for a certified order.  See our GA Courthouse Locations page for courthouse contact information.
