Protective Orders



You must qualify for a restraining order before it can be issued by the court. Harney County Crime Victim Service program is happy to help you navigate the qualifications and the paperwork to apply for a restraining order.

If you are awarded a restraining order, the protective order goes into effect once the respondent is served. The respondent has 30 days to file paperwork to contest the restraining order. If you receive a notice that you are to appear in court for a contested hearing, you can call Harney County Crime Victim Services for information about contested protective order hearings.

Most protective orders last one year. Petitioners need to remember to file extension paperwork before the original protective order expires.

Stalking orders are filled out by Law Enforcement and filed with the court for folks that qualify.
