Answer: She can request an order of protection from the court. Here is a link for that information: http://www.superiorcourt.maricopa.gov/SuperiorCourt/ProtectiveOrderCenter/oop.asp If the situation is an emergency, here is information from the same site regarding that: "Emergency Order of Protection If the Court has closed for business, Emergency Orders of Protection are granted by a judge in writing verbally, or telephonically to protect a person who is in imminent danger of domestic violence. Emergency Orders of Protection are available from local law enforcement agencies. If you are not in immediate danger, you can locate your local law enforcement agency's non-emergency telephone number by calling information at 411. There is a fee charged by your telephone carrier to call 411. If you are in immediate danger, call 911. The law enforcement agency will dispatch an officer to review your situation. If appropriate, the officer will contact the court after hours to request the Court grant an Emergency Order of Protection. If the order is granted, it will be a temporary order only good until the close of the next day of court business following the day the Emergency Order was issued. You will need to go back to the Protective Order Center the next business day to complete and file a Petition for a permanent Order of Protection."
