Protection Orders

questions & answers

Question: I got an order of protection, got it served and later was told by a judge to take our daughter off of it. The amended order ain't been served so is the original still in effect or how does this work?

Answer: The original protection order is still valid. Orders of Protection are not valid until served on the defendant. The order of Protection is presumed to be a valid existing order of the court for a period of one year from the date of service of the order on the defendant (A.R.S. 13-3602(M).)
