Unlawful Harassment / Anti Harassment matters only: If you do not submit a Motion to have the Filing Fee waived, or an Order Waiving Filing Fees is not granted and signed by the Court, you will be required to pay the Filing Fee for the Unlawful Harassment / Anti Harassment case. You may do this with a credit / debit card using nCourt. (Information will be included in the reply e-mail you receive after electronically submitting your paperwork.) Processing Fees apply.
If you do not wish to pay processing fees, you will need to pay with Cash when you appear for your Second Hearing. If you wish to pay with Credit or Debit Card, you may do so at the Clerk's Office front counter, PRIOR to going into your Hearing. Service Fees apply if you use a Credit or Debit Card for payment.

If you need to appear by Telephone or by Zoom, please make arrangements at least 2 days prior to your court date. Contact the Court Administrators Office (information below) to do this.
If your petition is GRANTED, you must keep a copy of the signed order with you at all times. You must be prepared to show it to Law Enforcement - should a situation arise where you need to call them to help enforce the order.
If your petition is DENIED, you will receive a copy of that order. You may file and Amended Petition within 14 days in the same case case number. After 14 days, the court case will be considered closed. This does not prevent you from making future requests for protection, should you need to. Each -new- request will be assigned a new case number.
