For a repeat violence case, you should include facts that establish that you or a member of your immediate family have or has been a victim of at least two prior incidents of violence, that one of those incidents occurred within the last six months and that there is an immediate and present risk of danger to you or a member of your immediate family.

For a dating violence case, you should include fact that establish that you have been a victim of violence or are in imminent danger of becoming a victim of violence from the respondent who is an individual with whom you have or have had a continuing and significant relationship of a romantic or intimate nature, to be determined by consideration of such facts as: whether the dating relationship existed within the past six months; whether the nature of the relationship included an expectation of affection or sexual involvement; and whether the frequency and type of interaction between you and the individual included involvement over time and on a continued basis. Dating violence does not include violence in a casual acquaintanceship or violence between individuals who have only engaged in ordinary fraternization in a business or social context.

For a sexual violence case, you should include facts that establish that you are a victim of sexual violence or the parent of a minor child living at home who is a victim of sexual violence, and that you have reported the sexual violence to law enforcement and are cooperating in the criminal proceeding if there is one.

For a stalking case, you should include facts that establish that you are either a victim of stalking or cyberstalking, or that you are the parent or legal guardian of a minor child living at home who is a victim of stalking or cyberstalking. The facts must establish that stalking exists in order for the judge to order a temporary injunction for protection against stalking. Please be specific as to where the incidents of stalking took place. These locations may include, but need not be limited to, a home, school, or place of employment. For cyberstalking, please include a description of all evidence of contacts and/or threats made by the respondent in voice messages, texts, emails, or other electronic communication.
