What are the steps involved for getting a victim protective order?
The steps to get a victim protective order are similar to the steps to get a domestic violence protective order. However, the protective order forms available at the courthouse and on the court’s website may not include all of the offenses included in this law. It may be helpful to print out a copy of the law and ask a lawyer or advocate to come to court with you to file. You may have to be prepared to explain to the court clerk and the judge that you are filing for a victim protective order under this section of the law. You can also find legal resources on our Finding a Lawyer page and advocates on our Advocates and Shelters page. You can also find the contact information for the clerk of the court on the OK Courthouse Locations page.
