Orders of Protection in Arizona
Do you need a Phoenix criminal defense attorney to fight an order of protection?
Under A.R.S. §34-3624, a person 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
- RESTRICTS RESPONDENT FROM COMING NEAR THE PETITIONER
- PROHIBITS RESPONDENT FROM POSSESSING A FIREARM
Fighting Harmful Orders of Protection
In many 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. 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.
