Protection Orders

questions & answers

Question: My ex has an order of protection on me. I am also on probation because of our relationship issues. I have to report all her attempts to contact me to my p.o. She has sent many threats, msgs, and requests I contact her. I have filed a police report against her, and victim svcs has told her to stop, but she now uses my p.o.'s name in her msgs while advising me that there is nothing either vic svcs, my p.o., nor TPD can do beyond advising her not to contact me, but I will go to prison if I reply. How can I protect myself against her? I have reason to fear further action by her.

Answer: The Order of Protection currently in place should include what actions you are ordered not to do. Keeping a record of all incidents and contact or copies of messages might be helpful for documentation if you need to contact law enforcement or probation about the situation. If you feel you are in danger or you continue to be harassed, contact law enforcement to see what options exist. In Arizona, you may want to contact the Arizona Coalition to End Sexual & Domestic Violence’s legal advocacy hotline by phone (602) 279-2900 or chat at https://acesdv.org for referrals to services and information about increasing your safety.
