How do I apply for a stalking protective order?

A stalking protective order can be filed in the civil district court. To find a courthouse near you, please go to our LA Courthouse Locations page. For more information on protective orders for victims of stalking, you can read the information on our Protective Orders (for Domestic Abuse) page since both pages refer to the same protective orders.
