How much does it cost? Do I need an attorney?

There is no fee to file for a Family Abuse Prevention Act restraining order1 and you do not need an attorney to get one. However, an attorney is recommended if the abuser contests the restraining order or hires an attorney. You can find legal referrals on our Oregon Finding a Lawyer page.
