NOTE: These forms do not contain legal advice. Oregon law bans us from offering legal advice to the public. To understand and protect your legal rights, you should consult your own attorney. For more information about applying for, modifying or renewing a restraining order, you may contact your local court or facilitator.

Translations of the final version of the FAPA forms are available in Spanish, Russian, Vietnamese, and Chinese.  NOTE: Forms must be translated into English before filing with the court. Please contact your local court if you need an interpreter.
