Do I need an attorney to get a protection order?

You do not need an attorney to file for a protection order, but it is generally better to have one, especially if there will be a hearing or if the abuser is represented by one. To find a lawyer or legal aid program in your area, please visit our NE Finding a Lawyer page. Often, domestic violence organizations can help you through the process if you do not have an attorney. To find a domestic violence organization, go to our NE Advocates and Shelters page.
