Protective Order Requirements

In order for victims to receive the quickest service possible, please know the following requirements:
Domestic Violence Protective Order applications are issued through Chez Hope for those who fit under the following requirements: 
  • Current or former spouse
  • Current or former intimate cohabitant
  • Child, stepchild, or foster child
  • Child of defendant’s current or former intimate partner
  • Current or former dating partner
  • Parent, stepparent, or foster parent
  • Grandparent
  • Grandchild

Our office only issues Domestic Violence Protective Order applications if one of the parties listed above has already been serviced by Chez Hope.  Chez Hope is the first level of service for Domestic Violence Protective Order applications.  Our office can only provide the application if there is a conflict in service.

ALL OTHER RESTRAINING ORDER APPLICATIONS MUST BE OBTAINED THROUGH AN ATTORNEY!

If you are not one of the parties above, unfortunately, Chez Hope or our offices are unable to assist you. You must contact an attorney for further assistance.

For example: disputes between friends, neighbors, extended family members, etc.

We are excited to share a very helpful video series from Louisiana Appleseed.

They produced this video series in order to walk self-represented survivors through the steps of filing for a protective order. This six-part series includes in-depth videos explaining the protective order petition, the notarization requirement, filing the petition, service of the petition, the protective order hearing, and what happens after the hearing. This video series is geared toward self-represented survivors and is a valuable resource for survivors who are filing protective orders themselves.
