Order of Protection in AZ: How the Courts Handle Them, and How Fast You Can Get One
In Arizona, orders of protection are typically handled pretty quickly by the courts, and in most cases, when you petition for an order of protection in the state of Arizona, you can be given the order on the same day. Any Arizona court can review your petition for such an order and issue the order on the same day, but this may not always be the case.
What’s more, you may get a better ruling in a court that’s different from the one you may be inclined to go to based on where you live, so getting in touch with an experienced Arizona family law attorney can help to ensure that you get the best order of protection in the quickest amount of time, especially if there is domestic violence involved in your case.
AZ Order of Protection: Who the Order Can Apply To
In the state of Arizona, an order of protection is used to help you seek protection from a person who you now live with, or a person you have lived with in the recent past. This person may be a member of your immediate or extended family, or it may be someone like a current or ex-spouse who you need protection from being exposed to or being harassed by.
In the state of Arizona, orders of protection are most commonly filed against:
- Someone you have had or who you currently have a sexual or romantic relationship with
- Someone with whom you share a child or children from a previous marriage or unwed romantic and/or sexual relationship
- Someone who is your immediate relative, or someone who is the immediate relative of a spouse, ex-spouse, or soon-to-be-ex-spouse
- Someone who is a parent, grandparent, brother-in-law, mother-in-law, other in-law, or your sibling
In Arizona, an order of protection may also be filed against any other person, regardless of the relationship you had or have with them, who you have cohabited with or with whom you currently co-habitate with, not just a person who you have had a sexual or romantic relationship.
