You do not have to do this, but you can choose to file (register) your protection order with the court in the county or other jurisdiction you move to. This may make enforcing the order easier.
In Washington State, either you or the court can register a “foreign” protection order (an order issued by another state or Tribe) using the Foreign Protection Order Information form. You can download the FPOI form or use form number WPF DV-1.050-FPOI to find it on the Washington Courts’ list of forms. To register a state protection order in tribal court, call the tribe directly. The State Tribal Directory has contact info for tribes within Washington State.
To register a tribal protection order in a different tribe’s court: Call the tribe directly. Not all tribal courts will register a tribal protection order from other jurisdictions.
* Even if you do not register your protection order, always keep a copy of the original protection order and proof of service with you.
