What is an injunction?

An injunction is a court order, also referred to as a restraining order, that directs a person not to have any contact with you.

Where can I obtain an injunction?

During the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., the Petition for Injunction should be filed with the Clerk of Courts. Once the forms are completed, the Clerk of Courts Office will file the petition and send it over to the assigned the judge for review.

What happens after an injunction is signed?

A hearing must be scheduled, and the violator must be personally served with the following:
Copy of the Petition
Notice of Hearing
Temporary Injunction
The formal hearing will be scheduled for the next available court session. You must attend the hearing, or the injunction will be dismissed. Local law enforcement agencies are noticed of all injunctions.
