How do I register my protection order in North Dakota?
To register your protection order in ND, you need to bring a certified copy of the order to any court clerk along with a sworn statement saying that the order is valid. The clerk will give you a certified copy to show that your order has been registered and will send the order to the local law enforcement agency.1
If you need help registering your protection order, you can contact a local domestic violence organization in North Dakota for assistance. You can find contact information for organizations in your area here on our ND Places that Help page.
