Order Registry (LPOR)
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 11 (v11) is the updated release for 2019. This latest version, which includes 32 forms, incorporates changes in relevant laws that were enacted by the state legislature during the last session.
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
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
Legislation was passed in 2018 that provides for gun transfer orders to be included in orders that prohibit gun possession. A new courtesy form (LPOR G) that complies with the statutory requirement for courts to gather gun possession information was added to our set of courtesy forms to assist courts in this process.
