Ohio law provides a procedure where a party who is being stalked, menaced, or harassed by another person can get a court order requiring that other person to stay away from and have no contact with the party seeking the order.

If you think you may need a Civil Protection Order, the Clerk of Courts strongly urges you to contact  First Step Family Violence Helpline at 740-622-9533.

 Trained advocates are available 24 hrs/day. 


Forms are also available on the Ohio Supreme Court website:  http://www.supremecourt.ohio.gov/JCS/domesticViolence/


Please note, the Clerk of Courts staff is not permitted, by law, to give legal advice on any matter.
