How do I get a disorderly conduct restraining order?

You can file for a disorderly conduct order in district court (see our ND Courthouse Locations page).  The steps for obtaining a disorderly conduct order are similar to those for getting a DV protection order.  Please see What are the steps for obtaining a DV protection order? for more information.  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
