What Are Orders Of Protection And What Does It Mean If They Are Filed Against You?

There are two main types of orders of protection in Arizona. They include:

  • Order of Protection (OOP) – typically sought by individuals who claim to be victims of domestic violence, such as spouses, former spouses, cohabitants, individuals in a romantic or sexual relationship, parents, grandparents, and guardians
  • Injunction Against Harassment (IAH) – typically sought by individuals who claim they are being harassed, threatened, or stalked by someone with whom they do not have a domestic relationship

Once one of these are filed, the court will review the petition and may grant a temporary order if it finds sufficient evidence of the alleged behavior warranting protection. Then, a hearing will be scheduled where both parties have the opportunity to present evidence and arguments before a judge, who will then make a final ruling. If a final order is issued, it can remain in effect for up to one year or longer.

Many times, petitions are filed by those engaged in landlord/tenant disputes, or custody/visitation disputes, in an attempt to sway things in their favor. However, that is not the proper use of this legal tool. You can have peace of mind that if a dispute like those mentioned above is the reason behind the order of protection being taken out against you, our skilled Tucson orders of protection defense lawyer will present a compelling defense on your behalf and put you in the best possible position for avoiding a permanent implementation of these orders.

How Can Your Life Be Impacted By This Matter?

Orders of protection can have significant effects on your day-to-day life, and even lead to serious criminal charges and penalties if the order is violated. Depending on your situation, you could face hefty fines, probation, mandatory counseling/treatment programs, and even prison time if you violate the order against you.

Violation of orders of protection can also negatively impact any future legal proceedings you are involved in, such as custody or visitation disputes, immigration cases, and more. Even while our lead Tucson orders of protection defense lawyer works to build a strategy on your behalf, it is crucial that you comply with the terms of the order to avoid legal repercussions and prevent your circumstances from escalating.

I was accused/cited for DUI so I hired Javier Alatorre to defend me (I was under the legal BAC limit). When I first spoke to Javier, he treated me like a person and never made me like a criminal so I felt very comfortable with him. He was always available to discuss this case even though it dragged on for over 3 years (COVID). The end result was that he got my cased dismissed. I couldn't ask for anything better. I highly recommend Javier.

Attorney Javier Alatorre is very attentive, personable, and responds timely to inquiries. His confidence and knowledge of the judicial process is commendable and very reassuring. His understanding of a client's concerns and worries is notable and very much appreciated. My case is ongoing, but thus far, attorney Alatorre has proven to be very responsible, available, and invested in serving his clients.

Even though my case was in Bull Head City. I am more than glad I got with Javier. Im the type of person that don’t trust anyone. Believe nothing of what you hear and only half of what you see. Thats my motto. After a week of talking to every lawyer through out AZ I liked Javier the best. And was extremely glad I trusted my instincts. I love to gamble but not with my life. Trust me. Just call him

Javier helped me out not once, but twice in an exceptional manner. Javier was always on time and one step ahead of the process. He was also extremely courteous to the courtroom employees and could navigate around situations at ease. Not to mention he had pin point precision in examining details in both cases. Both outcomes in the two cases I had him for were more than advantageous. I highly recommend Javier for your next case!

I highly recommend Javier Alatorre. He is very professional and exceeded all my expectations. Not only is he very knowledgeable, he takes the time and has the ability to explain all aspects of the case in simple terms.Javier draws on his own extensive experience as well as on his wide professional network to provide the best counsel across different specialties. In my case the immigration implications were important and he helped me understand the possible outcomes and decide on the best course to achieve the desired result.If you want results, you want Javier Alatorre on your team.
