Answer: If the friend and her boyfriend are over age 18, they can each file for an Order of Protection and Injunction Against Harrassment. ARS 13-3602. Order of protection; procedure; contents; arrest for violation; penalty. You can also go to http://www.superiorcourt.maricopa.gov/SuperiorCourt/ProtectiveOrderCenter/oop.asp for information on Orders of Protection and Injunction Against Harrassment. Once the judge has signed off on the Order of Protection, it needs to be served to the other side by Police Officer or Process Server. Once the Order has been served, the father and brother should stay away. if they do not, call 911 and report that they have violated the Order of Protection.
