Protection Orders

A protection order is a court order that requires someone to stay away from you because of domestic violence, stalking, harassment, or other kinds of behaviors.

There are different protection orders available through different courts in Clark County.  Find the protection order that sounds like it might apply to you, then visit one of the Self-Help Centers in person or online to get the forms and information about how to apply.
