Protective Order Unit
Protective Order Unit Services Announcement
Given the COVID-19 health concerns and state, county and local governments stay home/work safe declarations, the District Attorney’s Office Protective Order Unit, which is located in the Family Justice Center, remains open but has temporarily suspended in-person meetings for non-emergency matters. We are encouraging people in need of assistance to reach out to us by phone or online. Special arrangements are made for people unable to call or without access to the Internet. We are providing many of our same services by telephone and audio conferencing.
If you would like to discuss whether a protective order is right for you, you can reach us by calling (210) 631-0100 between the hours of 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday. You can find additional information about our protective order services on www.bexar.org/1442/Protective-Orders including our electronic protective order application, which is available in English and Spanish.
If you submit an electronic protective order application, a Crime Victim Liaison and Protective Order Advocate will call you as soon as possible during normal business hours to discuss important information and provide you with safety information.
The Protective Order Unit and Family Justice Center are located in the Archives Building (formerly The Federal Reserve Building), which is a Bexar County building. Effective April 6th, all Bexar County buildings have no-contact temperature checkpoints between 8 am-5 pm, Monday-Friday. All individuals must clear the checkpoint at the building’s main entrance before entering. Individuals with a temperature of 100 F or higher will be asked to return home and given a card with suggested precautionary measures to take.
Please know that you are not alone during this challenging time. We want to help you. Call us at (210) 631-0100 with questions about how we can help you or our modified delivery of services.
If you are experiencing an emergency, please call 911 immediately.
