How much does it cost to get a disorderly conduct restraining order?

There is an $80 fee to file for a disorderly conduct restraining order. However, if you are filing against a family or household member who is committing domestic violence against you, then there is no fee. If you cannot afford the fee, you may be able to request that the fee be waived by filing a form called “Affidavit in Support of Petition for Waiver of Fees.” If you request a fee waiver, the judge will decide if you need to pay the fee or not.1
