Protection Order documents

The Justice Court handles several different types of Protection/ Restraining Orders; the most common TPO’s are:

  • Stalking and Harassing (PDF) : This application is for relationships that are not romantic or family related (excluding siblings and cousins) and there must be an act of or threat of stalking and/or harassing. NRS 200.575 defines stalking as "A person who, without lawful authority, willfully or maliciously engages in a course of conduct directed towards a victim that would cause a reasonable person under similar circumstances to feel terrorized, frightened, intimidated, harassed or fearful for his or her immediate safety or the immediate safety of a family or household member, and that actually causes the victim to feel terrorized, frightened, intimidated, harassed or fearful for his or her immediate safety or the immediate safety of a family or household member".
  • Domestic Violence (PDF) : This application applies to all other relationships, romantic and family, and there must be an act of or threat of domestic violence. NRS 228.030 defines domestic violence as "meaning ascribed to it in NRS 33.018 and may include, without limitation, physical, sexual or psychological violence". NRS 33.018 states "Domestic violence occurs when a person commits one of the following acts against or upon the person’s spouse or former spouse, any other person to whom the person is related by blood or marriage, any other person with whom the person has had or is having a dating relationship, any other person with whom the person has a child in common, the minor child of any of those persons, the person’s minor child or any other person who has been appointed the custodian or legal guardian for the person’s minor child". (please visit NRS 33.018 for a list of the acts considered domestic violence.)
