At his time due to the COVID19 Coronavirus our county offices are closed to the public and our employees are working remotely. Please call the Benton County Prosecutor’s Office-Victim Services at 479-271-1030 and press option 2 for the Victim Advocates menu; here you will press option 2 or 9 where you will be directed to leave a voicemail with your name, phone number and the reason for your call. An advocate will call you back between the hours of 8am-4:30pm Monday-Friday to discuss your need to file for an Order of Protection and help walk you through the process online if necessary. Since the Circuit Clerk’s Office is closed to the public, you will need to be able to print out the documents, fill them out and have them notarized. You can then fax or email the documents back to us via the fax number or email address attached online. If this is not something you are able to do please discuss it with the advocate when you call so we can help make the proper arrangements for you. We will work with you as much as possible and will take this case by case as we go forward. Thank you for your understanding
