Does it cost anything to register my protection order?
The law is clear that there can be no fee charged to register a custody order from another state1 but there isn't a similar law that specifically says that no fee can be charged to register a foreign protection order. You may want to call the clerk at the courthouse to see if there is a fee or not. Go to our MI Courthouse Locations page for contact information.
