What are the steps involved with getting a civil no contact order?

The steps to get a civil no contact order are similar to the steps to get an order of protection, but you may fill out different paperwork. The petition can be filed in person or online.1 

If you have questions, you can call the clerk of court or talk to a lawyer.  You can find the contact information for local courthouses on the IL Courthouse Locations page and for lawyers on the IL Finding a Lawyer page.
