How do I get an order for protection against high-risk behavior?

The steps to get an order for protection against high-risk behavior are similar to the steps to get an order for protection against domestic violence, but you will fill out different forms. When filing a petition for an order for protection against high-risk behavior, your application must include:

  • your name;
  • the respondent’s name and address if it is known;
  • a detailed description of the behavior and acts that you consider to be high-risk behavior and the dates that those took place; and
  • any additional documents or information.1
