Domestic Violence

questions & answers

Question: My son (36) lives in Phoenix, AZ His Girl Friend (whom he has 2 children with) took out a Protection Order against him in order to make her apartment complex happy & not get kicked out. She had him stay away for a few days then moved him right back in. Does this not make the Protection Order Null & Void?

Answer: A protective order does not prohibit the victim from contacting the defendant. Contact initiated by the victim also does not void the protective order. However, by contacting the defendant, the victim may make it more difficult to prosecute violations of the order (or may support a defendant's request for changes to or rescission of the order).
