How do I get a copy of my restraining order that I have on my ex? I lost the original copy.
My answer applies to how you can obtain a copy of any order (not just a restraining order) in any case in which you are involved.
Easiest (but a potentially expensive) way: pay a lawyer a few bucks to help you obtain a copy.
Least expensive (but a potentially time-consuming and frustrating way) way: figure it out on your own.
How to do it on your own:
- Go to the courthouse (if, in the age of COVID-19, your courthouse is open to the public) and ask an employee in the court clerk’s office to help you locate your case name and number, so that you can identify your restraining order in the file. Then request a copy of the restraining order. Be prepared to pay a copying fee.
- If you cannot go to the courthouse or if the courthouse is not open to the public (because of COVID-19), get the phone number and/or email address for the court clerk’s office, then call and/or email to request help in obtaining a copy of your restraining order. Be prepared to pay a copying fee, even if the copy is emailed to you.
