paragraph 8. A next friend is a competent person, over 18 years of age, chosen by the minor

individuals. Check one of the boxes for the restrained person’s age.
Relationship
(Question 7)
The court must know the relationship between the protected individual(s) and the restrained
person. The court needs to know if the protected individual(s) and the restrained person are
“intimate partners” or “family or household members.” Check the box that best describes the
situation. If you are petitioning on behalf of a minor, the minor’s relationship to the restrained
person is addressed in question 8

If there are no children, check the box indicating “No Minors Involved.”
If there are children, list each child's name, age, race, and sex. Fill in how that child is
related to you (for example, son, stepdaughter, etc.). Fill in how that child is related to
the respondent. Fill in with whom that child lives (for example: me, grandparent,
respondent).
If you have questions about safety for your children, ask for advocate resources for help
in filling out this section.
Court Cases
(Question 9)
This may not be the first court proceeding involving the petitioner, the respondent, the protected
individual, or the minor(s). The court will need to know about other cases, such as divorce,
parentage, or criminal, or other restraining, protection, or no-contact orders so the court does
not issue an order that might conflict with an order from another court.
If there are other cases or orders involving you, or the minor(s) and the other party, list the case
title (the parties' names), the case number (if you know it), and the court (district, municipal, or
superior), county, and country in the columns provided.

Application
Request for an Order Enforcing or Refusing to Enforce the Canadian Domestic
Violence Protection Order
In this section, you must tell the court what you want the court to order after the proceeding (the
relief requested). The court can only grant the relief you request in the petition.
Attach a Certified Copy of the Canadian Domestic Violence Protection Order
The court needs a certified copy of the Canadian order to review in determining if the order is
valid.
Sign the Form
When you are done, put today’s date in the date line and fill in the city where you are
completing this form. Sign the form as the Petitioner.
If the Canadian domestic violence protection order states that your residential address is
confidential, you have the right to keep it confidential for this proceeding. If you want to keep
your address confidential, you must provide an address that is not your residential address
where you agree to accept legal documents.
Go to Court
Bring your completed petition to the clerk’s office of the local court. They will direct you further.
