Order of Protection Attorneys in Scottsdale

Helping to Protect Your Family through Aggressive Legal Service

If you or your children are being victimized by abuse or facing threats of physical harm, you have legal rights in Arizona. You can obtain an Order of Protection, which will prohibit the person who is putting you at risk from coming near you. Both temporary and permanent Orders of Protection can be issued by the court, and they can go into effect immediately.

At Singer Pistiner, PC., we know how frightening it is to have someone put your safety at risk. We can work on your behalf to provide protection and take the necessary steps to ensure your safety as quickly and cost-effectively as possible.

Call (480) 418-7011 or contact us online today to learn more about how we can help you to secure a protective order.

Your Right to an Order of Protection

You may apply for an Order of Protection from:

  • A current or former spouse
  • A current or former roommate
  • The father or mother of your child, including unborn children
  • Any person you currently or previously were involved in a romantic or sexual relationship with
  • A parent, grandparent, sibling, child, or grandchild
  • Your in-laws

The person who you are seeking an Order of Protection against must be engaged in behavior that puts you or your loved ones at risk.

For example, you can obtain an Order of Protection against someone who:

  • Has committed or is about to commit a dangerous crime against a child such as aggravated assault, sexual assault, molestation, sexual exploitation, kidnapping, murder, or attempted murder.
  • Endangers, threatens, or intimidates, or assaults you or your children
  • Harasses, intimidates, annoys, or threatens you in person or over the phone
  • Kidnaps or unlawfully imprisons you or a child
  • Engages in criminal trespass or criminally damages your property
  • Assaults or threatens to assault you or a child or uses a dangerous weapon to cause or threaten serious bodily harm
  • Abuses a child or a vulnerable adult
  • Interferes with judicial proceedings

You will need to be able to provide specific information about the abusive or illegal behavior that is occurring. An experienced attorney can help you to understand how to file paperwork with the court and can put together a compelling case on your behalf so you will have the best chance of being granted an order of protection.

Getting Legal Help

To obtain an Order of Protection, you will need to file a petition at the appropriate justice, municipal, or superior court. Any court in Arizona can issue an Order of Protection, provided you follow the appropriate procedures and have evidence to indicate that there is a problem.

When you come to the court to obtain an Order of Protection, be sure to have your address information, details about the defendant, dates the incidents of abuse occurred, and any applicable case numbers, plus the names and social security numbers of minor children who are included in the protective order.
