Serving Orders of Protection

The Cook County State’s Attorney, Clerk of the Circuit Court’s Office or the petitioner themselves can submit a protective order to be serviced by the Sheriff’s Office Civil Division at no cost. No Contact Orders and Orders of Protection are serviced identically and either can be filed with the Civil Division at any Cook County suburban courthouse or at the Richard J. Daley Center (50 W. Washington St., Room 701, in Chicago). Include the respondent’s valid address and correct zip code to ensure proper service.
