Restraining Orders In Arizona
To obtain an order of protection in Arizona, the person seeking protection (the plaintiff) must file a petition in any Justice Court, Municipal Court or Superior Court in the state. Judges routinely grant orders when there is reasonable cause to believe the subject of the petition (the defendant) has committed or may commit an act of domestic violence.
When an order of protection is issued, the defendant can request a hearing to contest the order. Whether you are the one seeking an order of protection or you wish to contest the issuance of an order, you should obtain legal representation. This is your opportunity to provide evidence in support of your position, and you need an experienced advocate on your side.
