How do I get a restraining order?
If you need a restraining order and the Gardner District Courthouse is open (8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.), please go directly to the Courthouse and the staff there will assist you. If the situation is an emergency and the Courthouse is closed, please call the Gardner Police Department 978-632-5600 or 911 if you are in imminent danger. An officer will be dispatched to your location to speak with you. In some circumstances, a temporary restraining order can be issued at the scene by an on-call judge. Once you receive a restraining order, keep a copy near or with you at all times in the event the defendant attempts to contact or harm you.
