On the petition, you will be called the “petitioner” and the abuser will be called the “respondent.”

Carefully fill out the petition. Be specific. Write briefly about the incidents of violence, using descriptive language (slapping, hitting, grabbing, threatening, etc.) that fits your situation. Include details and dates, if possible.

Before you sign the forms, check with the court clerk so you can sign it in front of a notary. Once you’re finished, give the forms to the clerk.

You shouldn’t be asked to pay anything.
