The Judge granted me a civil standby. What’s that?
A civil standby is completed when a person who is the respondent in a no-contact order wishes to remove basic items from a residence where he or she is not permitted to be by a court order. To arrange the civil standby, contact the Jefferson County Sheriff Civil Division by calling 360-385-9390. Do not contact the protected party or go to the residence without a deputy.
