Courthouse Locations

March 22, 2019

Below is a list of courthouses where you can file for a protection order. (If you want to file for custody, divorce, or anything else, you may want to call the courthouse to make sure that the court we have listed is the proper courthouse.) At the courthouse, the clerk will provide you with the forms that you need to file. In addition, each court in Illinois has a self-help center where you can get help finding and preparing court forms. You will also find links to online forms at our IL Download Court Forms page. For further help, you may want to reach out to a local domestic violence program or a legal services organization. You can find links to both types of organizations on our IL Places that Help page.
