NOTE: If you use our newest online self-help forms preparation tool, all of these forms will be prepared automatically, along with your Complaint, based on your answers to simple questions. If your Complaint has enough information, the judge will give a Temporary Order without talking to you.

If the judge gave a Temporary Order, the clerk will ask a police officer or deputy sheriff to serve the Complaint and Temporary Order and Notice of Hearing on the Defendant.
