How can I apply for a Protection Order?
There is a packet of forms you will need to complete and file with the Buffalo District/County Court Clerk. The protection order packet is available at the Courthouse, Kearney Police Department Victim/Witness Unit or the SAFE Center. You can complete these forms with or without the help of an attorney. You will be asked to provide information on your application regarding the abusive events such as dates, times and locations, past or current court cases and custody issues.
