Order of Protection & Abuse
An Order of Protection in Arizona can be based on a family or a household relationship, and an Order of Protection can be given if violence is alleged against the family or household members.
While the Order of Protection is in effect, it must be obeyed. If it is not obeyed by the person ordered by the court, that is grounds for contempt of court, which can result in jail time. If you are served with an Order of Protection, you are required to obey each and every term of the Order of Protection. Because the Order of Protection is temporary, you will soon get to contest it in court. If you violate the Order of Protection, it is contempt of court which can lead to jail and can hurt you when the time comes to contest. The same goes for the person who brings the Order of Protection, because if that person violates the terms before the contested hearing, you may show that the Order of Protection is unnecessary.
Closely related to the Order of Protection is the crime of “abuse of a family or household member, ” and this is a crime that can result in jail time. The Order of Protection and criminal abuse of a family or household member cases are to be taken very seriously. Either of them can affect future employment or the ability to obtain or retain a security clearance that is necessary for many jobs for government-related occupations.
The sensible course of action for anyone accused of abuse of a family or household member is to immediately contact Vaughan S. Winborne for assistance.
