What is a Civil Protection Order?

Idaho Legal Aid Services, Inc. has created a Civil Protection Order Guide to help you understand who may file for a civil protection order, what circumstances and situations allow one to file for a civil protection order, and what relationships, if any, are required between the person filing for a civil protection order and the person the civil protection order is against. This guide also includes information on how to file for a civil protection order, what hearings take place, how to prepare for these hearings, and resources available to Idahoans.
