Do I need anything special to get my protection from abuse order enforced?
In most states, you will need a certified copy of your protection from abuse order. A certified copy says that it is a “true and correct” copy; it is signed and initialed by the clerk of court that gave you the order, and usually has some kind of court stamp.
In Maine, a certified copy has a raised seal. If your copy is not a certified copy, call or go to the court that gave you the order and ask for a certified copy. You can find contact information for courthouses in Maine on our ME Courthouse Locations page.
