Extreme Risk Protection Orders

An extreme risk protection order is a civil court order that keeps a person (called the respondent) from having or getting firearms. The respondent must be a person who is at risk of hurting another person or of committing suicide. You can file for an extreme risk protection order if you are the respondent’s family member, household member, or intimate partner. Law enforcement officers can also apply for extreme risk protection orders.

We will be adding more information about the extreme risk protection order requirements and court process soon. For now, you can read more and find the forms to file for an order on Oregon’s court website.
