A protective order is a court order that can protect you from someone who has been violent or threatened to be violent.   The interactive interview, at the link above, will help you create the forms you will need to get a Protective Order in Texas.  At the end of the interview, you will be able to print your form, and will also receive instructions on how to file your forms in court.

Please see the section below for information on organizations that may be able to help you with these issues as well:

 

 

These court forms have been approved by the Supreme Court of Texas.  This means that you can file these forms in any county in Texas.
