Domestic Violence

questions & answers

Question: my ex and i have court appointed parenting time in family court. my ex keeps bringing her boyfriend around me during these exchanges and i have an OOP against him for threatening my life. my biggest question is i know he is violating law by doing that and can be arrested but is she in violation of some law in arizona by allowing it? FYI she has known about the OOP since it was issued and she helped fight it for him in court so "i didn't know about it" doesn't apply in this situation. im in fear that my ex is attempting to cause an issue by having him around when we exchange our children

Answer: An order of protection only prevents the person served from contacting or approaching the person who is being protected by the order. An individual who also happens to be with the person who was served would not be affected by the order unless also listed.
