How much does it cost to get a protection order?
It depends. The cost of filing for protection orders are different in each state and tribe. Often, there is no fee, or if there is a fee you can file to have it waived if you cannot afford to pay.
To find out how much it costs on your reservation, you can ask the court clerk or someone at a women's resource center.
