Orders of Protection

Orders of protection and injunctions prohibiting harassment (sometimes called “restraining orders”) offer protection for someone who is the victim of domestic violence, harassment or stalking. If you have additional questions, please call the Somerton Municipal Court at (928) 627-2722 of (928) 627-8152.

Any court in the State of Arizona can issue Protection Orders.  The purpose of a Protection Order is to restrain a person from committing an act of harassment or domestic violence. These types of cases are given high priority. 

After regular Court business hours, and during weekends and holidays, any police officer can assist you in obtaining an emergency order of protection.

It is best to obtain a protection order from the court in your community; however, if the situation involves minor children common to the adult parties, please contact Yuma County Superior Court.
