Question

I need a restraining order, how do I get one?

Answer

A Restraining Order is called an Order of Protection in Arkansas. An Order of Protection may be sought in the Washington County Circuit Court. The same Court which hears Divorce and Child Custody issues. A citizen may use their private attorney or if they can not afford one they can contact the Victim Assistance Program at the Washington County Prosecutors Office (479-444-1570).
