Nebraska Foriegn Protection Order Registry

The Nebraska Foreign Protection Order Registry is managed by the Nebraska State Patrol in accordance with Nebraska Revised Statute §42-936. Per statute, any protection order from another state, tribe or territory can be submitted to the Nebraska State Patrol for validation and entry into the Registry. Entry of protection orders into the Nebraska Foreign Protection Order Registry ensures access to Protection Order information by all Nebraska law enforcement.

The process to register an order with the Nebraska Foreign Protection Order Registry is as follows:

  1. The protected party must complete a “Foreign Protection Order Affidavit” which must be notarized. The Affidavit is available at any NSP office, any Nebraska District Court office, and online.
    1. It is important that this document be filled out as completely as possible so that the Notice of Certification and entry into the Nebraska Foreign Protection Order Registry can be returned to the protected party, and to ensure that law enforcement can properly identify the restricted party.
  2. Submit the Affidavit, and a copy of the certified order of protection, to the Nebraska State Patrol Centralized Protection Order Office by email, fax or postal mail.
    1. NSP.ProtectionOrders@Nebraska.gov
       
    2. 402-742-1148 (fax)
       
    3. Nebraska State Patrol
      Centralized Protection Order Office
      3800 NW 12th Street
      Lincoln, NE 68521
  3. The Nebraska State Patrol Centralized Protection Order Office will contact the issuing court to verify that the order is current, the date issuance of the order, the date of expiration and the date of service. The order will then be considered certified and entered in the Nebraska Foreign Protection Order Registry.
  4. To ensure access by all Nebraska law enforcement, the Nebraska State Patrol Centralized Protection Order Office will ensure entry of the protection order in the NCIC or State HOT Files law enforcement databases.
  5. Upon certification and confirmation of entry in a law enforcement database, the Nebraska State Patrol Centralized Protection Order Office will return to the protected party, via certified mail, a letter of certification advising that the protection order has been entered into the Nebraska Foreign Protection Order Registry.
  6. A fee shall not be charged for the registration of a foreign protection order.

 

Entry into the Nebraska Foreign Protection Order Registry is NOT required for enforcement of a protection order from another state, tribe or territory by Nebraska law enforcement. State and Federal statute provide 'full faith and credit' to be extended to orders of protection issued by another jurisdiction. Protected parties should NOT be directed to obtain a new Nebraska Protection Order, or required to register their foreign order, prior to enforcement.
