Child Custody

questions & answers

Question: In may 2018 I was granted full legal custody of my daughter . Father was ordered that he needed tons of psych eval.. counseling.. PTSD counseling ..parenting classes etc... before trying to modify anything it's been 7 months and to my knowledge none of this has been done ... I get constant text messages every single day from him which I never reply to but once in awhile to ask him to stop texting me can I file a restraining order for this reason

Answer: Unless the texts are threatening in nature, it is unlikely the court will grant you an order of protection under Arizona Revised Statutes, Section 13-3602.  Restraining orders and orders of protection are basically the same thing in this type of situation.  The statute requires the court to consider granting an order if:  the defendant has already committed acts of domestic violence; or is likely to commit an act of domestic violence.  Among your options, you may consider changing your cell phone number, ignoring the texts or possibly an injunction against harassment.
