Step 1: Go to court and request an application.

Go to the district court in your area. You can find a court near you by going to our Courthouse Locations page.  Find the civil court clerk and request a petition for a permanent protection order, and also tell the clerk that you want a temporary order. Usually you apply for these at the same time. You can find links to petitions online by going to Download Court Forms.
