How much does it cost to get a protection order?

There is no fee for filing for or serving a protection order. However, the judge may order you to pay fees and costs if the judge determines that the statements in the petition were false and that the protection order was sought in “bad faith.” Furthermore, at the final hearing, a judge may order the respondent to pay these costs.1
