There is something you can do.
An ERPO allows family/household members or law enforcement to petition a court to temporarily remove a person’s access to firearms when there is evidence that individual is likely to harm themselves or others.
How it Works
File a Petition
The petitioner fills out forms, which are reviewed by a judge. If satisfied, the judge issues a Temporary ERPO that orders the removal of the firearms from the restrained person.
Guns are Removed
Law enforcement notifies the restrained person (the respondent) of the petition and, if applicable, removes any guns and concealed pistol licenses.
Attend the Hearing
The petitioner and the respondent attend a hearing to determine if the Temporary ERPO should be extended for a full year.
Extension or Renewal
The petitioner can ask the court for renewal about three months before the ERPO expires by coming to the courthouse and filling out paperwork.
