 Louisiana Uniform Abuse Prevention Forms

 

The Louisiana Uniform Abuse Prevention Forms were developed by the Judicial Administrator’s Office and distributed statewide in 1999. This official release version was identified as version 2 (v.2) and included a total of 32 forms.  The current version, version 9 (v9) is the updated release for 2016.  This latest version, which includes 35 forms, incorporates changes in relevant laws that were enacted by the state legislature during the last session.



LPOR 1-23
These forms are the Louisiana Uniform Abuse Prevention Order forms, mandated for use under La. R.S. 46:2136.2(C). Once completed and signed, these orders are to be transmitted to the LPOR by the clerk of the issuing court. This set of 16 forms includes temporary restraining orders, protective orders, preliminary and permanent injunctions, criminal "stay away" orders, and orders to modify, dissolve and dismiss prior orders.

NEW IN THIS VERSION:The v9 form set has a noticeably reduced number of forms, accomplished by combining actions. 2015 legislation requires that LPOR now include a temporary restraining order and protective order to be used by victims of sexual assault by a stranger or acquaintance, similar to the civil action introduced last year for victims of stalking. The forms for use in stalking cases, introduced last year (LPOR 2 and LPOR 4) have been discontinued, and stalking and sexual assault have been added to LPOR 1 and 3 instead.


Existing order forms LPOR 5 and 7 have been amended for use in modifying, dissolving or dismissing stalking or sexual assault orders.


TRO’s and injunctions sought under the Post-Separation Family Violence Relief Act, formerly on an LPOR 11 form, have been combined with divorce proceeding TRO’s and injunctions on an LPOR 9 form, and the LPOR 11 is now discontinued. The order to modify or dissolve orders under either of these statutes, or under the Code of Civil Procedure Art. 3601 et seq. has been added to the existing LPOR 5 and the use of LPOR 14 for those actions discontinued.


The LPOR 19 form, seldom used, has been discontinued. This form was designed to be used when filing under a combination of statutes that included the Post-Separation Family Violence Relief Act. Instead, filers can use LPOR 20 which allows for any combination of statutes to be entered.


The LPOR 21 and 22 criminal order forms have been discontinued, and the relief formerly sought on those forms can be found in the updated LPOR 17 form.


All order forms include new “Findings” and “Notice to Defendant” language relevant to firearms prohibitions necessitated by recent state laws.

LPOR A-Z
These forms are supplied as a courtesy to the courts and are not mandatory for use. These forms are not transmitted to the LPOR, and can be altered locally if desired. Forms in this set include petitions, service information, rules to show cause, motions and instructions for filling out petitions.

NEW IN THIS VERSION: In the v9 form set the petition (LPOR D) for a civil stalking order, can now be used to file for protection from sexual assault by a stranger or acquaintance as well. The instruction form for filling out the petition for protection from stalking (LPOR Y) includes instructions for filing for protection from sexual assault. The form LPOR N, introduced last year as a motion for a rule under the stalking statute, has been discontinued as stalking and sexual assault circumstances have been added to the current LPOR M form instead. Form LPOR T, previously a motion to modify or dissolve an order under Post-Separation Family Violence Relief Act, divorce proceedings, or Code of Civil Proc. Art. 3601 et seq actions, has been discontinued as these statutes have been added to those listed in LPOR P.
