THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT PROTECTIVE ORDERS – This booklet is designed to provide general information about protective orders in the State of Arizona.

Mt. Graham Safe House “Not Just A Shelter” – Read this brochure for more information on services and criteria.


A civil court order issued to prevent continuing acts of family violence.  Family violence is defined as any act by one member of a family or household intended to physically harm another member, a serious threat of physical harm, or the abuse of a child.

It is intended to prevent the offending person from contacting you.  A judge can order that the offending person (defendant) not contact you in person, by phone, in writing or other means and can order the defendant from contacting you at specific locations such as your residence, work, school or other locations.  A judge can also order that the defendant surrender and/or not purchase firearms and ammunition.

Victims must remain cautious and have a personal safety plan.  It is not an order for temporary child custody for the purpose of preventing a parent from seeing children, unless the children are endangered.  It is not on order for visitation.


A civil order that does not depend upon relationships, and is available if the conduct of any person is “harassment” as defined by law.

It is intended to prevent a person (defendant) from contacting you and/or any other protected persons included in a judge’s order.  A judge can also order that the defendant not contact you in person, by phone, in writing or other means and can order the defendant from contacting you at specific locations such as your residence work, school or other locations.


A civil order issued to protect employees at an employer’s place of business.  Only an employer or an authorized agent of an employer may file an injunction prohibiting workplace harassment.



You may use these forms and instructions in this packet if…

  • You need to have payment of filing fees and/or other court fees and costs deferred, that is, you need to pay later, AND,
  • You understand that since waivers, which excuse payment completely, are rarely granted at the beginning of a case, if your request for deferral is granted you will later receive either a bill for the full amount or a payment plan from the Court, AND,
  • You understand that when you receive that bill or payment plan, you may then file a “Supplemental Application for Further Deferral or Waiver” to request more time to pay or for the court to waive payment of fees and costs completely, AND,
  • You understand that filing these forms does not guarantee your fees will be deferred or waived, but that deferral or waiver will be granted if you meet the requirements established by law.
  • You understand that effective February 1, 2009, IF your request for deferral is granted, a charge of $27 will be added to your deferred fees.

If you are required to pay fines, penalties, fees or other financial obligations as a result of a judgement of this court and you are unable to pay, bring this information to the attention of court staff or the judge because payments over time or other alternatives may be available. Do not ignore your responsibility to pay, as this may result in additional penalties and costs to you. For more information, contact the court at (928) 428-3100 or an attorney.

Si a usted se le exige pagar multas, sanciones, cuotas u otras obligaciones económicas como resultado de una sentencia en este tribunal y no puede pagarlas, avíseles o al personal del tribunal o al juez de su situación porque puede ser posible pagar a plazos o puede existir otra opción. No haga caso omiso de su responsabilidad de pagar, el cual le podría generar nuevas sanciones y costas. Para obtener más información, póngase en contacto con el tribunal (928) 428-3100 o un abogado.
