The Ins and Outs of the Protective Order Service Notification Program


What is the PO Service Notification Program? How does it work? Who can access it? How can it be accessed? How can petitioners know when their protective order has been served? How many orders are issued in Washington per month? What kind of orders are issued and which ones are covered in this program? Are there other notifications the system can make? What can advocates do to assist?

These questions and more, including those you bring to the webinar and those presented in WCSAP’s legal advocacy survey, will be covered during the session.
