What do I do after the court hearing?

If you are given a protection order, you should carry a copy of the order with you at all times. This protection order is good in every state, so take it with you if you travel or move to another state.1

What happens if the respondent violates the order?

If the respondent (harasser) violates the order, you can call the police and s/he could be arrested. Violation of a harassment order is considered a Class II misdemeanor.1

1 NE R.S. § 28-311.09(4), (10)

What if I move out of the county where the protection order was issued?

The order will still be valid and enforceable no matter what county you are in. However, you may want to contact law enforcement in the new county in which you live to let them know that you have an order.1
