Now you can file your papers from home.
Effective June 15, the L.A. Superior Court will accept applications for restraining orders at new, dedicated email addresses for each participating courthouse.
There are now four ways to file a request for a restraining order (or a response to one). You can email them in. You can fax them to the numbers on the notice. You can drop them off in a box outside the courthouse. Or you can file them in person at the clerk’s office like before, but you’ll need to make an appointment twice: once to file your documents and another to pick them up when they’re processed and ready to serve.
As always, if you are in immediate danger, call the police instead, and ask for an emergency protective order.
