Protection Order Forms Committee History
In October 2007 the Judicial Council of the State of Nevada (JCSN) approved the formation of an interim statewide Protection Order Forms Committee (Committee) under the auspices of the JCSN to consider how any new enacted legislation would affect the standardized protection order forms, and to make any necessary changes to the forms. In addition, the Committee may examine various policy issues regarding the forms and make recommendations to the JCSN for submission to the Supreme Court. The Committee examines all standardized protection forms, which includes domestic violence, stalking, aggravated stalking, harassment, workplace violence, harm to minors, and sexual assault.
The 2007 legislature enacted legislation that made a number of technical and substantive changes that affected the standardized Protection Order forms. In particular, AB Bill 194 and AB 282 contained language that involved substantive changes to the domestic violence standardized forms that needed to be reviewed by the Committee. The below Protection Order forms for domestic violence were designated as mandatory or voluntary, and were approved by an Order of the Supreme Court in December of 2008.
In 2009-2010, the Committee’s primary focus was to review Assembly Bills 120 and 309, and create standardized protection order forms for victims of sexual assault requesting a protection order, as well as review the stalking and harassment protection orders to address the new definitions of stalking and harassment in Assembly Bill 309.
The Nevada Legislature did not make any changes to protection order statutes in 2011. The Committee may be reconvened in the future provided that changes to the forms become necessary.
