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 8 (v8) is the updated release for 2015. This latest version, which includes 47 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 25
forms includes temporary restraining orders, protective orders,
preliminary and permanent injunctions, criminal "stay
away" orders, and orders to modify, dissolve and dismiss
NEW IN THIS VERSION: The v8 form set now includes a temporary restraining order and protective order to be used by victims of stalking by a stranger or acquaintance (LPOR 2 and 4). Existing order forms LPOR 5 and 7 have been amended for use in modifying, dissolving or dismissing these stalking orders (LPOR 5 and 7). LPOR 16, an order to modify or dissolve an order of protection issued under La. C.C. Proc. Art. 3601 et seq, has been eliminated, and LPOR 14 has been amended to include usage under this statute instead.
LPOR 21, previously used as a criminal order against stalking by a stranger or acquaintance, has been amended to include use in any stalking case, regardless of relationship between victim and offender.
LPOR 22 is a new criminal order of protection issued in conjunction with a domestic abuse battery conviction. LPOR 18 has been amended so that it can be used to modify or dissolve the LPOR 22 order.
All order forms include new language about firearms prohibitions necessitated by recent state laws.
