Courts hear requests for civil protection orders to those who believe they are at risk of violence or have been threatened with abuse. There are four different types of protection orders.

Requests for Criminal Temporary Protection Orders may be issued in criminal cases against an alleged offender. These orders remain in effect only while the case is before the court or until the court issues a CPO or CSPO.

Obtaining and Filing a Petition:
Alleged victims may apply for Criminal Temporary Protection Orders at their city's municipal court or at the applicable Butler County area court.

Requests for Civil Stalking Protection Orders are heard in the General Division of Common Pleas Court for those who believe they are in danger of being harmed by someone who is not a member of their family or household.

Obtaining and Filing a Petition:
Petitions for Civil Stalking Protection orders may be obtained either online or at the Clerk of Courts office, which is located on the fifth floor of the Government Services Center.
