Orders of Protection
Restraining Order Lawyer and Order of Protection Attorneys based in Phoenix, AZ
Orders of protection are court orders that are used to protect an individual against domestic violence or harassment. Some provisions of an order of protection can restrict contact between the parties, and specifically requested locations. Violating an order of protection can result in criminal proceedings.
While restraining orders are commonly confused with orders of protection, there are a few distinct factors that separate them. Restraining orders prohibit a person from certain actions such as harassment and contact and they do not have to be specific to family violence.
