In many divorce cases, at the beginning of the case, it’s possible (and common) for preliminary injunctions to be issued by the family court. As a specific type of Scottsdale restraining order, preliminary injunctions for divorce are usually issued for both parties in the divorce, and they are typically temporary, only lasting until the final divorce decree has been issued by the court.

These types of restraining orders are generally intended to prevent:

  • Either partner from harassing the other partner.
  • The selling off of marital or community property.
  • Existing insurance policies from being terminated before the divorce has been finalized.
  • Minor children from being taken out of Arizona and/or moved without court permission or the consent of the other parent.

Restraining Orders for Domestic Violence: Orders of Protection in Arizona

When allegations of domestic violence or any type of abuse are part of a divorce case, getting an Order of Protection can be critical to keeping the alleged victims safe until more permanent solutions can be devised. In general, Orders of Protection:

  • Can be obtained from a Superior Court, a City Court or the Justice of the Peace Court.
  • Are free to apply for.
  • Can be issued on the same day as the request for this type of restraining order (i.e., the Petition for Order of Protection).
  • Are intended to keep an alleged abuser away from victims until further investigation into the matter can be conducted.

Here, it’s also important to note that you should call 911 if you or your children are in any immediate danger related to domestic violence.
