Maricopa County Superior Court opened its first Protective Order Center (formerly Family Violence Prevention Center) in downtown Phoenix in 2001. The Center provides resources within the court building to assist individuals dealing with family violence issues. Visitors can obtain necessary paperwork to pursue a court order related to domestic violence. The Protective Order Center also provides resources to help individuals understand and navigate the process of obtaining protection orders to prevent domestic violence or harassment.

QUESTIONS

  • I have a order of protection against my ex but he continues to stalk me and text me. What can I do about this? He has also placed a tracker on my car, recorded audio and video of me without my knowledge, tried to break into my apt, he is threatening me and won't leave me alone. I don't know what to do anymore. I have saved every email/text/voicemail his sent me. I need advice as to what I'm suppose to do. Also he has no address so there is nowhere to send the cops to.
  • I was given exclusive use of our residence in my OOP. Is my husband still required to pay his half of the rent even though he was required to leave the residence?
  • I was granted an order of protection from a judge after receiving death threats from former employer for resigning after enduring abuse. They are now harassing me by means of my unemployment. Such as making up lies about me and appealing constantly. They are even giving bad reviews of me to potential employers. What are my options??
  • On a Saturday night me and my ex got in a fight. It was nothing to big i thought. I went to bed and as I did i punched the wall and put a small hole in it. She slept on the couch. The next day i got up and she was not there. I called her to see where she was and she said that she wanted to separate. That was about 5pm on Sunday. We fought over the phone. I called her twice. Then about 8or9 the cops showed up and took my guns. Tuesday night they showed up again and kicked me out of my house and said she got a protection order against me. How is this possible? And it's for a year.
  • if someone has filed an harrassment against myself and they very specifically demanded that i am not allowed at the community pool in the same apt. complex and i was at the pool first then she comes to the pool herself and stays has she herself violated her own order and does said protection become null and void alltogether
  • Recently, I have been put under a the protection of a restraining order with out my consent. It lasts one year and I do not wish to remain under it for that long. I'm going to turn 18 in a few months. Is it possible to take the protection of the restraining order off of me when I turn 18?
  • For an Order of Protection to be filed, does there have to be an incident within the past 12 months or is long pattern of abuse sufficient?
  • I was fired from my job for no reason. I was upset about when I spoke to my boss and called a co worker a bad word at my boss. Then, they filed a workplace harassment injunction on me. I filed a hearing. The judge threw out the false claims they made on me but had to keep the injunction on me because of the bad word I called the co worker when I was fired. I want this off my record without filing an appeal. How can I get this off my record?
  • I live with my ex girlfriend. It has become turbulent. The past year plus she has physically/verbally/objects thrown at me/harassing email-text/threats on my life-police-suing me etc. This is a daily event. I have been told by family to file a PFA. She has no car and we dont know anybody here(From out of state). I work at home and pay 99% of the bills. Along with all the above issues my business is is also affected affected(I am forced out of the apartment almost daily). I am concerned that if I get a PFA they will ask me to leave because I have a car(she does not)--now what?-plus im a guy?
  • A court signed an Injunction Against Harrassment to protect me from my ex-boyfriend but I cannot afford to pay a process server to have the injunction served on him.  He is still harrassing me but leaves before the police arrive.  What should I do?
