Orders of Protection in Arizona | Domestic Violence Lawyer


An Order of Protection (sometimes referred to as a “restraining order”) can be a necessary measure when you are a victim of domestic violence. Orders of protection can depend upon one’s relationship to the assailant and are specially constructed to address your specific situation. Domestic violence can include many different aggressive and manipulative behaviors, including assault, threats, intimidation, crimes against children, illegal restraint, or custodial interference of a child.

Situations and relationships wherein an order of protection may be appropriate include the following:

  • The victim and defendant are married, formerly married, or have cohabitated.
  • The victim and the defendant have a child in common or are expecting a child.
  • The victim is related to the defendant or the defendant’s spouse by blood or court order as a parent, grandparent, child, grandchild, brother or sister, or marriage as a parent grandparent-in-law, stepparent, step-grandparent, stepchild, step-grandchild, brother-in-law, or sister-in-law.
  • The victim is a child who resides or has resided in the same household as the defendant and is related by blood to a former spouse of the defendant or to a person who resides or has resided in the same household as the defendant.
  • The relationship between the victim and the defendant is currently or was previously a romantic or sexual relationship.

Arizona Attorney for Domestic Violence

If you are found to be eligible and need an Order of Protection, there are two options available. An Emergency Order of Protection helps to protect someone in immediate danger. However, it is only valid for two days, and so it’s advised to seek a more permanent solution concurrently. A Permanent Order of Protection requires a formal hearing in which both parties can present their case.
