Do I have to register my protection order in Nebraska in order to get it enforced?

No. Nebraska state law gives full protection to an out-of-state protection order as long as the officer believes that the order exists and that it is valid (real).1 It does not have to be entered into the state or federal registry in order to be enforced by a Nebraska police officer, but the officer does need to believe that it is valid.
