Domestic violence victims can now pursue protective court orders on their own under a self-help initiative.

The creation of the free protective order kits designed to provide victims with easy step-by-step instructions for filling out paperwork to receive temporary restraining orders.

Peggy Zaongo is Program Director for Phoebe's Home says, "When we talk about a protective order, they're really afraid. These kits will give you self help so you can really read yourself, understand the procedure for protective order, know your rights and then proceed."

In the next few weeks, these kits will be at Phoebe's home, local hospitals, the library, and law enforcement agencies.

Kits available online www.Texaslawhelp.organd the www.oag.state.tx.us
