Individuals requesting temporary protective orders or stalking orders through the court system should never go to the Magistrate Judge’s office, the Clerk’s Office, or any other office. They must first contact the shelter advocacy office for screening and further instructions regarding the process. Shepherd’s Rest’s legal advocates will then refer the client to appropriate resources as needed at the end of the initial interview. Alleged victims should be instructed to contact the shelter legal advocacy office to determine whether their particular incident meets criteria under the aforementioned statute. Citizens are often referred to Shepherd’s Rest for TPO’s who do not meet criteria. It is in the best interest of the citizen to simply instruct them to call the advocacy office to discuss their incident with an advocate to see if it qualifies for the protective order.
The TPO forms can be picked up at the Paulding County Sheriff's Office. The Paulding County Sheriff's Office will fax your completed form to Shepards Rest Ministries for you. You may contact Shepards Rest Ministries at any time for support at 770-443-5213.
