Serve Restraining Order

There are two basic ways to serve papers in a Restraining Order Case: Personal Service and Service by Mail

Whether papers are served personally, served by mail, or served in some other manner, a party to a restraining order cannot serve their own papers.  Someone else must serve the papers for you.

The initial papers must be served by personal service.  Additional papers may be served by personal service or by mail.

The following forms concern service of papers:
