Protective Order Registry Form & Order - Senate Bill 325, enacted by the 86th Legislature, requires the Office of Court Administration (“OCA”) to create an online registry for family violence protective orders and applications. Court clerks are to enter the documents and information into the registry, and specified officials have full access to the registry’s contents. Upon a protected person’s request and OCA approval, the public has access to more limited information. The bill requires the Court to prescribe a form for use by a protected person to request or remove public access to that more limited information.
