How do I register my order of protection in Wyoming?

To register your order of protection in Wyoming, you must present a certified copy of your order to a clerk in the circuit or district court in the district where you think enforcement may be necessary.1  The clerk will give you a receipt and will forward your order to the local sheriff’s department or chief of police for entry into the state registry. 2

There is no fee for registering your order,3 but it is always a good idea to bring along your photo ID and any documents that the court gave you along with your original order.

If you need help registering your order of protection, you can contact a local domestic violence organization in Wyoming for assistance. You can find contact information for organizations in your area here on our WY Advocates and Shelters page.
