A Protective Order can help keep you safe. However, an order is only one part of staying safe and may not be the safest option in every situation. If you have questions about other options to stay safe call:
The Arizona Coalition Against Domestic Violence, 602-279-2900 or 800-782-6400
IF YOU ARE IN IMMEDIATE DANGER CALL 911
There are several available civil options that can provide for the safety of victims of domestic assaults and their families, such as an Order of Protection, Injunction Against Harassment and Injunction Against Workplace Harassment. The type of relationship will determine the appropriate form and corresponding court order.
These options can prohibit the abuser from contacting, attacking, striking, telephoning, or disturbing the peace of the victim; Force the abuser to move from a residence shared with the victim; order the abuser to stay away from the victim, his or her place of residence, and place of employment; order the abuser to attend counseling; and prohibit the abuser from purchasing a firearm. Orders of protection may also include a provision for the safety of children and others living in the home.
