Do I need a lawyer to enforce my order of protection?

You do not need a lawyer to get your order of protection enforced in another state. However, you may want to get help from a local domestic violence advocate or attorney in the state that you move to. A domestic violence advocate may be able to let you know what the advantages and disadvantages are for registering your order, and help you through the process if you decide to do so. To find a domestic violence advocate or an attorney in the state you are moving to, the Places that Help page and then choose your new state from the drop-down menu and click “Enter.”
