You need to request form the court and submit form CC 377 - Petition for Personal Protection Order Against Stalking (Non Domestic).
This is what you need to do:
1. Fill out the form CC 377 using the instructions on the forms.
2. File the Petition and Order form with the county clerk.
Take the forms to the circuit court
clerk in the county where you are seeking the order. Bring 3 sets of statements from witnesses and supporting documents if you have any. The circuit court clerk will finish filling out the form, will attach your written statements and supporting documents to the proper copies, and will return copies of both forms to you. Do not lose these copies.
What you should have when you leave the clerk's office:
Green, Blue, Pink, and Yellow copies of CC 375 or CC 377
3. Get the order signed.
Ask the circuit court clerk for instructions to the judge's office. Go to the judge's office as soon as possible. Leave the green copy of the petition form (with attachments) and all copies of the order form with the judge's staff. Ask when to come back for the signed order.
What you should have when you leave the judge's office:
Blue, Pink, and Yellow copies of CC 377 and 1 set of attachments for yourself.
Do not lose these copies and the attached materials; you will need them later.
4. Pick up the signed order from the judge.
If the judge's office does not send the order to the circuit court clerk, go back to the judge's office on the day and time you were told to pick up the signed order.
If the judge will not sign the order without a hearing, he or she must state the reasons in writing at that time. Ask for a copy of these written reasons. If you are told you can request a hearing and want to schedule one, return to the circuit court clerk to do so
5. Return to the circuit court clerk.
Unless the order form was already sent to the clerk by the judge's office, return to the clerk's office with:
Blue and Yellow copies of CC 375 or CC 377
The circuit court clerk will stamp the order, keep the original and green copy and return 4 copies to you. The clerk will send a true copy of the order to the law enforcement agency. If you want to take the order to the law enforcement agency also, the clerk will make a true copy for you.
6. Serve the petition and signed order on the respondent.
What you need for service:
Blue copies of CC 377 - for respondent
Yellow copies CC 377 - for proof of service
The respondent must be served (notified) as soon as possible: 1) by registered mail return receipt requested, with restricted delivery to the respondent; or 2) in person. You may serve the respondent by first class mail only if you get permission from the judge.
After the respondent has been served, fill out the Proofs of Service on the back of the yellow copies of both the petition and order forms and on the back of the goldenrod copy of the order form and attach the receipt of service to the yellow copies, if one. All copies must be notarized.
Return to the county clerk with the yellow copies CC 377
7. Call the police or sheriff to be sure they received the order and entered it onto LEIN.
The circuit court clerk will send the green copy of your order to the law enforcement agency
stated in the order even if you take a copy to them yourself. A few days after the order was signed, call the police or sheriff department named in the order to be sure they have a record of the order and that it has been entered onto LEIN. If they don't have the order, call the circuit court clerk and ask where it is. The order is enforceable as soon as it is signed by the judge.
