Restraining Orders

What if I don't register my order of protection? Will it be more difficult to have it enforced?

Maybe.  While neither federal law nor state law requires that you register your order of protection in order to get it enforced, if your order is not entered into the state registry, it may be more difficult for a Wyoming law enforcement official to determine whether your order is real. Meaning, it could take longer to get your order enforced.

If you are unsure about whether registering your order is the right decision for you, you may want to contact a local domestic violence organization in your area.  An advocate there can help you decide what the safest plan of action is for you in Wyoming.  To see a list of local domestic violence organizations in Wyoming, go to our WY Advocates and Shelters page.
