Step 3: A judge will review your petition and assign a court date.

After you finish filling out your petition, bring it to the court clerk. The clerk will forward it to a judge. The judge may wish to ask you questions as he or she reviews your petition.

You will be given papers that state the time and date of your hearing for a permanent protection order.
