How does the order get delivered to the respondent?
The sheriff’s department generally delivers the protective order to the respondent/stalker. You should check with the clerk’s office to see if you have to bring the papers to the sheriff or if the court will deliver them to the sheriff. You can find contact information for sheriff offices on our GA Sheriff Departments page.
