How do I register my protective order in Louisiana?
In Louisiana, registering your protective order is called making the order “executory,” which can be done if you file a petition requesting it and attach a copy of your order. There will be a hearing at which the judge can order the creation of a Uniform Abuse Prevention Order, which the court clerk will file and send to the Louisiana Protective Order Registry.1
If you need help registering your protection order, you can contact a local domestic violence organization in Louisiana for assistance. You can find contact information for organizations in your area on our LA Advocates and Shelters page.
