Who gets a copy of the order?

You will get a copy of the protection order, as will you abuser and law enforcement officials in your area. However, you may want to follow up with your local police and sheriff's department to make sure they have a copy of your order on file. If they do not, make sure you send a copy to them.

It is very important that you keep this order with you at all times. Make sure that every place listed on the protection order also has a copy. This may include your child's school, your place of employment, or any place else listed on the order. You are responsible for making the copies and giving them to the necessary people and places.
