How do I get a disorderly conduct restraining order?

The steps for obtaining a disorderly conduct order are similar to those for getting a domestic violence protection order. You would file for a disorderly conduct order in district court, which are listed on our ND Courthouse Locations page. If you are in immediate danger, a judge can issue you a temporary disorderly conduct restraining order on the date you file your petition that will last until you have a full court hearing.  For more information about the kinds of disorderly conduct restraining orders, please see What kinds of disorderly conduct restraining orders are there and how long do they last?

Contact the clerk of the court in your area or a lawyer for more information.  A state’s attorney may also advise and assist a person in preparing the documents necessary to get a disorderly conduct restraining order.1
