Orders of Protection in Arizona

Do You Know What to Do If You Need to Fight an Order of Protection?

Orders of protection, also sometimes referred to as restraining orders can be obtained by someone who required legal action to protect themselves from another person. Under A.R.S. §13-3602, someone who has been or is being abused by a family member or other member of their household has the right to obtain an order of protection from the court.

An Order of Protection Is a Court Order That:

  • Prohibits further acts of abuse or violence;
  • Requires the respondent to move out if they live in the same home as the person who was granted the order;
  • Restricts the respondent from coming near the petitioner;
  • Prohibits the respondent from possessing a firearm.

Fighting Harmful Orders of Protection

In some cases, a person will falsely accuse a family or household member of domestic violence in order to obtain a wrongful order of protection. When this happens, the defendant may be restricted from seeing other family members such as their children, or from entering their former residence because the plaintiff has been granted exclusive possession. This can be an especially damaging action during a custody battle and may result in the person who secured the order receiving sole custody of their children. Such restrictions can have a harmful effect on the life of the defendant and on the lives of any other parties involved. A Phoenix criminal defense attorney from MayesTelles PLLC understands these problems and can help you build a strong defense and fight against unjust orders of protection in court.
