What are the steps for getting a child abuse restraining order?

The steps for getting a child abuse restraining order are similar to the steps for getting a domestic abuse injunction. The forms will be slightly different, so be sure to ask the clerk for the paperwork to file for a child abuse restraining order. You can combine a petition for a child abuse injunction into the same case with a petition for domestic abuse or harassment if the abuser is the same.1 See our WI Download Court Forms page for the forms that you might need.
