What happens when I go to court?

Once the application (PDF) has been filed and the person you are complaining against has been served, the court will hold a hearing. You will be required to testify during the hearing. An attorney with the Midland County District Attorney's will represent you in court and prepare you for the hearing. After hearing the testimony and examining all of the evidence, the court will then make a ruling.
