An order of protection order, also known as a “protective order” or “restraining order,” is a court order which prevents a person from contacting, physically abusing, threatening, sexually abusing, harassing, or stalking another person. According to Arizona law:
“A person may file a verified petition, as in civil actions, with a magistrate, justice of the peace or superior court judge for an order of protection for the purpose of restraining a person from committing an act included in domestic violence.”
