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
