How much does a harassment protection order cost?
There are no fees for filing a harassment order (but the judge may possibly order the respondent to pay court costs).1 However, if the judge finds that any false statements were made in the petition and the request for the order was made in “bad faith,” the judge may order you to pay court filing fees.2
