Phoenix Domestic Violence Restraining Order Violation Defense Attorney

Restraining Order Violation Lawyer in Phoenix, Arizona

Violation of a restraining order or order of protection in Phoenix is taken very seriously by both the courts and the prosecutors. If you are served with a restraining order or an order of protection, only the Court can modify or terminate the order. Even if the person who obtained the restraining order or order of protection later changes his or her mind and invites you to have contact with them, you can be charged with this serious offense. It is also not uncommon for 'victims' of this offense to use the restraining order or order of protection as a sword instead of a shield. As both a prosecutor and a defense attorney, I have seen many occasions where the holder of the court order initiates and maintains contact with the other party and later notifies or threatens to notify the police when they become angry or upset. The bottom line is that if you have been served with an order of protection or a restraining order, only the court that issued it can legally allow you to resume contact.
