What happens next

The court will give the application to the other person, who has a chance to respond. Then you’ll need to go to a hearing at the court, where a judge will decide whether or not to make the Restraining Order. The court will tell you when you need to be there.

If the person wants to ask the court not to make the Restraining Order, they‘ll also be at the hearing.
