Domestic Violence

questions & answers

Question: How can an Injunction or Order of Protection be served if the person harrassing me does not have a specific address, but moves from one house to another (and those addresses are not known to me)?

Answer: You are required to provide the court with addresses when available (but, you can also advise the court that the defendant moves from property to property). Even without a confirmed address, you may still complete the paperwork and if a Protective Order is granted by a judge, you will receive a copy of the Protective Order. Keep the Order with you at all times. If the defendant appears, call the police or the sheriff and they will use your copy to serve the papers so the order will become effective.
